BBC America has found their leading star. The network just announced Richard Dormer will star in their new TV show, The Watch.
Based on the novels by Sir Terry Pratchett, the drama series "centers on a group of misfit cops as they rise up from decades of helplessness to save their corrupt city from catastrophe."
On The Watch, Dormer will play "Sam Vimes, Captain of The Watch, disempowered by a broken society that's reduced his department's jurisdiction to almost nothing." He joins fellow cast members Jo Eaton-Kent, Marama Corlette, Lara Rossi, and Sam Adewunmi."
