CBS's Backstrom crime drama pilot from Bones creator Hart Hanson has added The Unit's Dennis Haysbert, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Based on the Swedish book series by Leif G.W. Persson, the story follows an offensive and overweight detective called Everett Backstrom who attempts, and fails, to change his self-destructive ways. Haysbert is in as Detective John Almond, one of the detectives who works with Backstrom, a religious, kind character who's been married for three decades, with a completely opposite character to Backstrom. Almond thinks that Backstrom's hunches are just luck. Mark Mylod, known for Ali G Indahouse, Entourage and Shameless, directs the pilot. Hanson scripts and serves as executive-producer on Backstrom, alongside Niclas Salomonsson. »
