A&E is Bringing Sexy Back: O.C.T. Starring Rosario Dawson is New Competitor for Television’s Sci-Fi Genre
AMC has brought us the best that TV has to offer i.e: The Walking Dead, Breaking Dead, and Mad Men, and now it will get some competition as another channel brings sci-fi to your work-week. O.C.T (Occult Crimes Taskforce) graphic novel, will be getting its chance to shine on A&E. Hollywood Reporter states that Gale Anne Hurd, who is producing AMC’s hit zombie show, The Walking Dead, is on staff for this next sci-fi bombshell. If y’all aren’t paying attention to this show yet, then wait until you hear who the lead is.
Eva Mendes? Angelina Jolie? Nope and nope. Rosario Dawson, best known for her roles in Clerks II and Sin City, will be taking home the headline role. Here is the plotline for the upcoming series O.C.T:
The task force, which was established after the Civil War to make the New York City streets safe from practitioners of Black Magic, demons from another dimension and all manner of supernatural malcontents.
Like the graphic novel, co-created by Dawson and David Atchison, O.C.T. will center on the character of Sophia Ortiz, a new member of the bureau who uses magic, spells, ghosts, the undead and the unnatural. At the heart of the story is an ongoing struggle between the O.C.T. detectives and an organized demon-force attempting to take over Manhattan.
After lending her image for the graphic novel, I’m not surprised that with an assured free schedule, she’d be able to play the role. I may not have have read the graphic novel, but I’m sure this kick-ass chica will be able to bring out an amazing performance. Of course, bets I’m sure will be made on whether we will see some skin. Otherwise, what are your thoughts on the addition of this sci-fi show to A&E
