While we all love him as Malcolm Winters on The Young and the Restless, or Derek on Criminal Minds, Shemar Moore is readying another TV comeback announced today via Deadline!

The Daytime Emmy-Award winning actor is now set to star in a new drama pilot for the network which has made him a household name, CBS.  Moore will star in S.W.A.T.inspired by the 2003 Sony movie that was based on the 1975 ABC series produced by Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg.

In concept: S.W.A.T. is described as an intense, action-packed procedural following a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant, Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson (Moore), torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that is the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.  Moore’s Harrelson, exuding calmness but always ready for action, has all the ability to become a leader – he’s just not happy with the reason he just became one. The role was played previously by Samuel L. Jackson in the 2003 movie directed by Clark Johnson.

The pilot will be executive produced by The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, Neal H. Moritz, Justin Lin and Aaron Rahsaan Thomas, as well Shemar Moore will serve as a producer on S.W.A.T.

Excited to learn that Shemar may be back on his way to primetime TV? Do you hope he will come back for another return visit to The Young and the Restless sometime soon? Comment below!

    ”Steel yourself Shemar Moore fans: The heartthrob is coming back to network TV.
    ((a video you can’t see lol)
    In S.W.A.T, a presumably –frequently shirtless Moore– will play Daniel ‘Hondo’

    It’s a plum role for the 46-year-old longtime actor, who told TVGuide.com as he was departing Criminal Minds last year that he was “looking for his Homeland” i.e. a place where his talents — and, we have to assume and hope — those splendid pecs and abs can shine–

    The original “S.W.A.T.” series, produced by Aaron Spelling, ran for two seasons on ABC in the mid ’70s. The 2003 movie, based on the TV show, starred Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Farrell, LL Cool J, Michelle Rodriguez and Jeremy Renner.S.W.A.T. (TV Series 1975–1976) ”
    OK– my google search ^^ tells me;
    Moore will be showing us abs, lots of shirtless time to display his 6 pack ..
    ((I seen ‘em in the video heh..

    I liked the series when it ran back in the 70s. The movie was pretty good. I am going to tune in to see Shemar take this new character although I don’t expect to see it run as long as “Criminal Minds” has if it does get a green light to go ahead to series.

    i hope everything works out with this reboot because the reboot of “ironside” and “rush hour” didn’t do so well…………………….
