Former Sea Patrol and ER actor David Lyons gets his shot as a series lead in the US next Sunday night when The Cape airs on NBC.
As previously noted, The Cape takes place in the fictional Palm City and follows a cop who is framed for a crime he didn’t commit and forced to go into hiding while he attempts to clear his name.
