ABC’s ensemble drama Quantico adds Anabelle Acosta for a multi-episode arc.
Acosta is currently appearing on HBO’s sports comedy Ballers where she plays the strong willed girlfriend of a wide receiver. On Quantico, Acosta is set to play Nathalie Vasquez. Vasquez was a former Laredo, Texas and is more interested in coming out on top than being a team player. She is described as being driven, competitive, and kick-ass, according to Variety.
The fall drama stars Priyanka Chopra. It follows a group of diverse recruits who train at the FBI Quantico Base together. Even though it seems impossible, one of the recruits is suspected of leading the biggest attack on NYC since 9/11. Also set to star in the series is Jake McLaughlin, Aunjanue Ellis, Yasmine Al Massri, Johanna Braddy, Tate Ellington, and Graham Rogers.
Quantico was well received by advertisers and ABC moved it’s spot in the fall line-up. The show was originally slated for Tuesday nights but has been given the Sunday 10 pm EST time slot alongside ABC hit Once Upon A Time and newcomer Blood & Oil, according to Deadline.
The official trailer for the series can be watched below. Quantico comes from Josh Safran, Mark Gordon, Nick Pepper, Jake Coburn and Robert Sertner and is set to premiere on ABC on September 27.
