'Ghostbusters' Favorite Boards Epix Comedy 'Graves'
Ernie Hudson has boarded Epix comedy Graves.
In the premium television network's half-hour political satire, the Ghostbusters alum will recur as Jacob Mann, a staple in the Graves family for decades who acts as the family fixer. Having helped his loved ones out of numerous sticky situations over the years, Jacob has become a member of the former first family, viewed as an uncle by the children and relied upon by both the former president and first lady in nearly every situation.
Produced by Lionsgate, Graves is created and written by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote), who also executive produces, alongside Greg Shapiro (The Hurt Locker).
In addition to his turn as Winston Zeddemore in the Ghostbusters films, Hudson is known for playing Sergeant Albrecht in The Crow and Warden Leo Glynn in HBO's Oz. He's repped by APA and Artists International Management.
Graves will premiere next fall on Epix.
