Training Day star Katrina Law joins Sean Bean and Ryan Kwanten in The Oath series

Training Day star Katrina Law has just been cast in Crackle‘s The Oath series. She’ll join previously announced cast members Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Cory Hardrict (American Sniper) and Arlen Escarpeta (The Magicians). In The Oath series, Law will play Karen Beach, a police officer, and the sole female member of the Ravens cop gang, who has tendency to overcompensate by out-toughing the macho company she runs with and gets involved in a forbidden love affair with a member of a rival cop gang.

RELATED: Watch the Trailer for Crackle’s Snatch Series

Created by Joe Halpin (Hawaii Five-O, Secrets and Lies), who worked as a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy in South Central for 17 years, 12 of which as an undercover officer, the series takes ‎an unforgiving look at the complicated dynamics in these organizations and documents the lives of those willing to risk it all, to have it all. The gritty, action-packed drama, explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend and sheds light on corrupt and secret societies that are nearly impossible to join—only a select few make the cut–but once inside, members will do what they must to protect each other from enemies on the outside and from within their own ranks.

The Oath series is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television Inc., Todd Hoffman and Dennis Kim of Storied Media Group, as well as former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Joe Halpin (Hawaii Five-O, Secrets And Lies), who served for over a decade as an undercover cop in South Central and brings an invaluable air of authenticity to the series in his role as series creator, writer, and showrunner. Veteran filmmaker Jeff T. Thomas (Blindspot, Wayward Pines) will direct the series’ premiere episode.

In addition to Training Day, Law is known for her work in the Starz series Spartacus and for playing Nyssa al Ghul on The CW’s Arrow.
