Former Walking Dead Star Lands New Show On ABC’s “The Trustee”


Fans Miss Abraham Ford After His Iconic Death

At the risk of dredging up grim emotions, you might remember the Season 7 premiere, where Abraham and Glenn were brutally killed by Negan. Since then, rumors of a flashback with Abraham have surfaced. It looks like the actor has some other plans as well.

Actor Michael Cudlitz To Star On ABC

Since leaving AMC’s The Walking Dead, Michael Cudlitz has signed on for the ABC drama, The Trustee. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The pilot revolves around Eliza Radley (Meaghan Rath), a driven but stubborn detective who finds unlikely help from her precinct’s trustee, a larger than life ex-con finishing out her prison sentence doing menial tasks for the police department. Although these two have completely opposing views on crime and punishment, a highly entertaining and successful partnership is born.”
