Ruben Santiago Hudson

With AMC's Low Winter Sun now canceled, co-star of that series Ruben Santiago-Hudson has already booked a new TV gig, this time, heading over to TNT to co-star in a pilot titled Public Morals, alongside Ed Burns.


Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Public Morals, which will be written and directed by Burns, will be set in New York City’s Public Morals Division, during the late 1960s, where cops walk the line between morality and criminality, amid temptations that come with the job.

Burns stars as one of the better cops, who is determined to raise his kids on the straight and narrow, within the filthy world in which he works. 

Santiago-Hudson has signed up to play his boss, Lt. King, who's described as a womanizing bad-ass, who's also loved and respected by his peers and underlings.

The star of both stage and screen most recently appeared on Broadway, in Lydia R. Diamond's Stick Fly.
