The three actors will be joined by Jermaine Crawford and Nathan E. Corbett, who are set to join the series in a guest star role. The five actors will join an already impressive cast, with Jon Bernthal, Josh Charles, and Jamie Hector all having joined the series based on Justin Fenton’s book We Own This City: A True Story of Crime, Cops and Corruption.

According to the report, Street will play James Otis, a Baltimore resident and HVAC repairman who was robbed and locked up by GTTF Detective Daniel Hersl. Chaney will portray Gordon Hawk, a recent addition to the Harford County Narcotics Task Force, while Clanton will play Brian Hairton, a Baltimore cop who isn’t afraid of speaking his mind when it comes to police misconduct or poor policing.

Crawford will play Jaquan Dixon in his guest role, a young BPD patrolman who is simply trying to do the best job he can. Corbett will portray Tariq Touré, an author from West Baltimore and community activist.

We Own This City chronicles the rise and fall of the Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force — and the corruption and moral collapse that befell an American city in which the policies of drug prohibition and mass arrest were championed at the expense of actual police work.
