[TV] Kal Penn Cast In Vince Gilligan's Battle Creek Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.20.2014
A new CBS series...
Deadline reports that Kal Penn will reunite with House creator David Shore for Battle Creek, the CBS series from Shore and Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad).
The series follows a detective and FBI agent with two different world views who are teamed up to fight crime in Battle Creek, Michigan. Penn will play another local detective who has problems with the FBI agent at first. He looked at several different pilots before deciding on Battle Creek due to his relationship with Shore. Penn co-starred on House for two seasons before he left to take a job at the White House.
This will be a return to CBS for Penn after his run on the canceled comedy series We Are Men and his recurring role on How I Met Your Mother. Battle Creek was created by Gilligan for CBS in 2002, but has been tweaked since then. Both Gilligan and Shore will executive produce while Shore will be the showrunner.
