Deadline is reporting that ABC drama pilot Harlem’s Kitchen has cast Sheryl Lee Ralph (Ray Donovan) and The Strain‘s Miguel Gomez.
Ralph will play Rice family matriarch CC, a world-class pastry chef who always puts the needs of her family above her own and who has been the secret ingredient in her husband’s success.
Gomez will portray undocumented line cook Marco, who was taken in by the Rice family when he arrived in New York with his brother. Hard-working, passionate, and sensitive, Marco is imminently likable.
In addition to her role on the Showtime drama, Ralph’s television credits include Fam, Moesha, and Claws, while Gomez has appeared on the likes of SMILF and Louie.
