Kurt Ostlund books a role on Fox Network’s “Backstrom“.
Backstrom is an upcoming American crime drama series based on the Swedish book series by Leif G. W. Persson and developed by BONES creator/executive producer Hart Hanson. BACKSTROM is a subversive and comic crime procedural about an unhealthy, offensive, irascible — albeit brilliant — detective who is brought back from exile to run the Portland Police Bureau’s Special Crimes Unit (S.C.U.). Detective Lieutenant EVERETT BACKSTROM (Emmy Award nominee Rainn Wilson, “The Office”) is a man with no filter. After a five-year banishment to the traffic division for offensive behavior, he has returned from disgrace to lead Portland’s newly minted S.C.U.
