East New York Hitting CBS This October

(released 8/25/2022)

East New York is a new drama series that will debut on CBS and air Sunday evenings from 9-10pm. The show is from executive producers of "NYPD Blue" and stars Amanda Warren as Deputy Inspector Regina Haywood. Newly promoted to the 74th Precinct, in East New York. The precinct is in a working class neighborhood in the mist of social upheaval and the beginning signs of gentrification. Haywood has family ties to this neighborhood and is committed to help her community. Seeking her officers' and detectives' support is met with challenges to the changes she wants to make. The team has skeptical views of her promotion.

Her team includes her mentor, shrewd veteran two-star Chief John Suarez (Emmy Award winner Jimmy Smits); Marvin Sandeford (Tony Award winner and current nominee Ruben Santiago-Hudson), a highly respected training officer and expert on the neighborhood; Tommy Killian (Kevin Rankin), a detective with some old-school approaches to policing; Capt. Stan Yenko (Richard Kind), Haywood's gregarious and efficient right hand; Crystal Morales (Elizabeth Rodriguez), an intuitive detective who can't be intimidated; Andre Bentley (Lavel Schley), a trainee from an upper middle-class background; and ambitious patrol officer Brandy Quinlan (Olivia Luccardi), the sole volunteer to live in a local housing project as part of Haywood's plan to bridge the gap between police and community. Regina Haywood has a vision: she and the squad of the 74th Precinct will not only serve their community – they'll also become part of it.

East New York was shot on the streets this past spring while based out of Broadway Stages, much like CBS's previous show Bull and fellow Paramount+ movie Blue's Big City Adventure.

The first episode will premiere on Oct 2, 2002 at 9:30p.m. after The Equalizer.

To catch all of East New York, go to Paramount+.
