Actor Brandon T. Jackson, who's currently gracing the big screen opposite Martin Lawrence in 'Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son,' has been tapped as the male lead opposite Minnie Driver in CBS' buddy P.I. pilot 'Hail Mary.'
The series centers on Mary Beth Baker (played by Driver), a suburban single mom in Atlanta who, after her teen son gets killed, teams up with her son's best friend, KZ (played by Jackson), a fast-talking con artist from the streets, to solve her son's murder and other crimes, stated Deadline.com.
While the Detroit native guest starred on Fox's 'Raising Hope,' this represents his first regular stint on television.
Driver, who appeared in 2010's 'Conviction' and 'Barney's Version,' was last on the small screen in the critically acclaimed FX series 'The Riches.'
