Both Angela Bas­sett and Raven Symone are headed back to the small screen. The two have landed recur­ring roles in sep­a­rate series at the ABC Networks. 

Bas­sett, the newest mem­ber of the ABC drama “One Police Plaza,” will play NYC’s first female com­mis­sioner in the series.

The series, still in devel­op­ment, is being pro­duced by Linda Fairstein, Ken­neth L. Solarz and Gor­don and Deb­o­rah Spera. Fairstein and Solarz are also onboard as the series’ writers.

Our other lead­ing lady, Raven Symone will return back to her TV roots for the ABC Fam­ily com­edy pilot, “The Great State of Geor­gia.” The show will cen­ter around Symone’s char­ac­ter, Geor­gia, an exu­ber­ant curvy per­former from the south who is try­ing to make it big as an actress in New York City.

Brock Cuchna, Jen­nifer Weiner and Jeff Green­stein are also tapped to star in the project.

Symone started her career at 3 years old on “The Cosby Show” and worked non­stop for 18 years until the end of her show “That’s So Raven” in 2007. This will be her first recur­ring TV role since.

Bas­sett was last seen on TV in the 15th and final sea­son of ER in 2008–2009. Her next two films “Jump­ing the Broom” and “Green Lantern” are sched­uled for a 2011 release.
