Rounding out the cast is Ben Bass (“Would Be Kings”), Eric Johnson (“Millville”), Matt Gordon (“Rent-A-Goalie”), Noam Jenkins (“Flashpoint”) and Melanie Nicholls King (“The Wire”).
It is executive-produced by award-winning Tassie Cameron (“Flashpoint”), Ilana Frank (“The Eleventh Hour,” “Would Be Kings”), Noreen Halpern (“Hung,” “Haven”), John Morayniss (“Hung,” “Haven”) and David Wellington (“The Eleventh Hour,” “Would Be Kings”).

Rookie Blue currently airs Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
