Jonez, meanwhile, was discovered after a nationwide casting call and will make his acting debut in Unsolved.

The People v. O.J. Simpson director Anthony Hemingway has signed on to direct and produce the show with actors Jimmi Simpson, Bokeem Woodbine, and Josh Duhamel on board to play police officers investigating the deaths.

Unsolved is largely based on the experiences of former Los Angeles Police Department detective Greg Kading.
