Danielle Truitt, Giancarlo Esposito, Mykelti Williamson and Method Man are just a few of the names attached to BET’s upcoming original series, “Rebel.”

According to S&A, the one hour program is described as follows: At the center of the narrative is Oakland police officer, Rebecca “Rebel” Cole, who has always excelled by playing by the rules. She has always known that she must be better and smarter on the job because she is both black and female. After her brother is slain by police, Rebel soon becomes disillusioned with the system and is forced to take matters into her own hands and become a private investigator and a champion for her community. Caught between family loyalty and the fraternity in blue, Rebel’s actions set in motion a cause-and-effect crisis that can’t be undone.

Truitt will star as ‘Rebel,’ Esposito will star as her lieutenant while Williamson will play her father, Meth as her ex-husband and Brandon Quinn as her police officer partner.

“Rebel” is produced by BET and co-written, executive produced and directed by John Singleton.
