Tom Selleck is getting a promotion from P.I. to NYPD chief of police, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Selleck, who starred in the long-running CBS series “Magnum, P.I.,” is close to a deal to join an untitled CBS pilot which focuses on a family of New York City cops. Selleck is to play the chief of police for the city.
The actor’s last series role was on the final season of NBC’s “Las Vegas.” He has also been seen for the last five years as the star of CBS’ “Jesse Stone” movie franchise.
