That’s right, ER’s star Noah Wyle has snagged the lead role in an upcoming drama, Red Line. Seems that Noah Wyle plays Daniel Calder, a high school teacher whose black husband is shot and killed by a white Chicago police officer, leaving him a single parent to their adopted daughter.

Red Line follows 3 families in the aftermath of a horrible police shooting that leaves a man dead and the families trying to cope with the aftermath.

The Red Line is set in the Chicago area and the description reads as follows… “After a white cop in Chicago mistakenly shoots and kills a black doctor, we follow three vastly different families that all have connections with the case as the story is told from each perspective.”
