Tommy—no relation to the musical eyeing a return to the Great White Way—will star Edie Falco as a former police officer who becomes the first female Chief of Police in Los Angeles. Similarly, Lenk will play a sports agent who is also no stranger to being the only woman in a male-dominated industry. The series will also feature Broadway alum Thomas Sadoski.
Lenk, who took home the Tony Award in 2018 for her work in The Band’s Visit, will take center stage as Bobbie in the upcoming gender-swapped revival of Company; the production, also starring Patti LuPone, will begin performances March 2, 2020, at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Lenk is a familiar face in the CBS circuit, with a recurring role on the CBS All Access series The Good Fight.
