Emmy winning producer and director Anthony Hemingway has joined the producing team of CBS’s upcoming dramatic pilot Murder.

According to S&A, Hemingway will executive produce and direct the project that stars former Survivor’s Remorse actress Teyonah Parris.

As previously reported, Murder will explore crime through the unique and often-conflicting perspectives of cops and killers, witnesses and victims, friends and family. The series will invite the audience inside the emotional journey of an investigation, allowing them to discern the truth and judge the suspects’ guilt or innocence for themselves.

Parris will star as Detective Ayana Lake, who is described as “a rising star in the NYPD whose keen intellect and quick, analytic mind are the keys to her success.

Hemingway has worked on a number of popular series and films throughout his career including Empire, Underground, Shameless, Orange is the New Black, Treme, Red Tails, American Crime Story, True Blood and Shots Fired. 

Stay tuned to this weekend’s edition of UPFRONT where I talk to Hemingway and the cast of his new USA Network series Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. It premieres TOMORROW night at 10 p.m. EST.
