Actor Danny Pino is making the jump from procedural dramas to a comic thriller about brain-eating aliens. The former star of CBS's Cold Case and NBC's Law & Order: SVU has a landed a role in the series BrainDead, which is in the works at CBS for a summer 2016 debut.

Created by Robert and Michelle King and produced by Ridley Scott, David Zucker, and Liz Glotzer, the series 

follows Laurel, a young, fresh-faced Hill staffer who gets her first job in Washington, D.C., and discovers two things: the government has stopped working, and alien spawn have come to Earth and eaten the brains of a growing number of congressmen and Hill staffers.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead is set to star as Laurel, and Pino will be playing her brother Luke, a Democratic whip senator from Maryland.

Also in the cast are Nikki James as medical resident Rochelle; Aaron Tveit as Gareth, the Legislative Director to a Republican senator; and Johnny Ray Gill as Gustav, an eccentric genius.

I don't watch much television, for example I have never watched Cold Case or Law & Order: SVU, but BrainDead is definitely a show that will be getting added to my DVR list.

This sounds like fun but I don't know if Cbs will do it justice. Rather see it on hbo or amazon or netflix. Amc would be great but they already have two shows kinds like this already.
