Peter Facinelli is joining S.W.A.T. in a recurring role!

Peter Facinelli has been cast in new CBS drama series S.W.A.T. for what is expected to be a recurring role.

Inspired by the 2003 film, S.W.A.T. centers on a locally born-and-bred SWAT sergeant (Shemar Moore) who’s torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. Stephanie Sigman, Alex Russell, Lina Esco, Kenneth Johnson, Peter Onorati and Jay Harrington also star.

Facinelli plays Michael Plank, a confident, powerful businessman who also volunteers as a civilian Police Commissioner and head of the Police Board. While attending a charity event at SWAT headquarters, he is introduced to the team. When Jessica (Sigman) presents him with a list of innovations she’s drawn up for the department to improve its relationship with the community, he’s deeply impressed by her passion and imagination but wants to help her refine her proposals. He expresses an intention to take Jessica under his wing and sees a bright future for her, but just what that future entails in his mind remains to be seen.
