Deadline reports that Soffer will be introduced on Season 2 of “Fire,” before transitioning over to “PD” which is expected to launch midseason on the network.
Soffer joins a cast that includes Raymonde (“Lost”), Jason Beghe, Jon Seda and Mykelti Williamson.
Melissa Sagemiller who was expected to bring the character of Detective Julia Willhite from “Fire” to “PD” will not be continuing with the spinoff.
Soffer was a regular on last season’s short-lived FOX drama “The Mob Doctor.” He was also nominated for three Daytime Emmys for his work on “As the World Turns” and played Bobby Brady in “The Brady Bunch Movie” and “A Very Brady Sequel.”
Lifetime’s “Jodi Arias” movie airs Saturday.
