Shemar Moore returning to TV

Press Trust of India  |  London 

"Criminal Minds" actor Shemar Moore will be back on TV this year for a military drama, called "SWAT".

CBS has ordered its TV remake of "SWAT" as part of its fall 2017-18 primetime line-up and Moore will be seen in the lead role, reported Spy.

The show is a series version of the 2003 action thriller "SWAT" starring Samuel L Jackson.

Moore is best known for playing FBI Special Agent Derek Morgan in "Criminal Minds" for more than a decade.

"He got cast in this SWAT pilot, and we knew if it went to series - and all signs point to yes - we would never to get to use him again. So it felt like now or never," said "Criminal Minds" executive producer, Erica Messer.
