Dunbar will play Steve Adams, a "guy's guy" who has seen the less glamorous side of what life has to offer. A detective who used to be Vince's partner in the force, he now functions as Vince's best friend and confidante, often calling into question Vince's choices.

House's Shore will pen the script and executive produce the Sony Pictures Television drama. Tommy Schlamme will direct the pilot.

Dunbar is repped by Buchwald Fortitude and Levity Entertainment.
