PRECINCT 17 Casts Kristin Kreuk

Kristin Kreuk

If NBC doesn’t pick up Ron Moore’s PRECINCT 17 as a series, I’m going to be very disappointed because it keeps sounding better and better. TVLine reports that the latest casting addition is Smallville‘s Kristin Kreuk.

So far only a guest star in the pilot, Kreuk will play Susan Longstreet, the wife of Jamie Bamber’s crime scene analyst. If NBC greenlights the series; though, the role could become recurring.

Precinct 17 will focus on a police squad in the fictional town of Excelsior, a place where science gives way to magic and the supernatural. Two other Battlestar Galactica veterans join Bamber in the show. James Callis will play a homicide detective while Tricia Helfer will be Morgana the necromancer. Stockard Channing (The West Wing) and Matt Long (Jack and Bobby) also star.

Is anyone else getting excited about Precinct 17?
