NCIS: New Orleans actor Derek Webster has joined the cast of Mayor of Kingstown, an upcoming drama series starring Marvel's Jeremy Renner.

Co-created by Hell or High Water writer Taylor Sheridan and Yellowstone's Hugh Dillon, the show follows the McLuskys, a family of power brokers living in the titular Michigan town, where the business of incarceration is a pretty lucrative one.

Set to tackle hard-hitting themes such as systemic racism, police corruption and the struggle for equality, it also stars Emma Laird (as dancer Iris) and I Care a Lot's Dianne Wiest – the latter of whom plays Miriam, the McLusky family matriarch.

Renner will take on the role of Kingstown mayor Mike McLusky, while Webster has been brought on board to play a cop named Stevie, Deadline reports.

He's not the only newbie who has recently joined the cast, either. While announcing Webster's involvement, Paramount+ revealed that The OC actor Taylor Handley had signed on to portray Mike's youngest brother Kyle, a police officer desperate to become a trooper, too.

Training Day director Antoine Fuqua will produce the title alongside Renner, Sheridan, Dillon, David Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari and Michael Friedman. MTV Entertainment Studios, Sheridan's Bosque Ranch Productions and 101 Studios will also produce.

Mayor of Kingstown will stream on Paramount+ in the US. A UK broadcaster is yet to be confirmed.
