The drama, which will star Jennifer Lopez, will also feature the previously announced Ray Liotta, Drea de Matteo, Vincent Laresca, Warren Kole, Hampton Fluker and Sarah Jeffery.
Directed by Barry Levinson, "Shades of Blue," according to the media outlet, "follows a tight-knit crew of police officers who are effective at keeping the streets safe but also corrupt when it comes to lining their pockets and protecting their own. When one of the officers (Lopez) is forced to become a federal informant, she must decide between her own family’s welfare and that of her police family."
Fontana will play tough police officer Stuart Saperstein, who still lives with his mom.
Fontana was Tony-nominated for his performance in Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella.
