*Lance Gross may return to NBC under the same director who helmed his last project for the network.
The actor has joined “Warrior,” a martial arts-themed drama pilot for NBC from director Phillip Noyce, reports Deadline.com.
The show is set in a contemporary multicultural and sometimes magical milieu, and centers on Kai Forrester (Natalie Martinez), a damaged heroine who works undercover with physical and spiritual guidance from a mysterious martial arts master to bring down organized crime syndicate YOMI.
Gross plays Agent Golden, an Interpol agent and former Navy SEAL who gives Kai the news that she is their best shot at getting an agent inside the triad.
Andy Allo also joins the cast as the daughter of YOMI’s New York boss.
