After recently ending her run as show lead on Nick at Night sitcom, Instant Mom, Tia Mowry-Hardrict has already landed another recurring gig on FOX’s Rosewood.

In the crime procedural series starring Morris Chestnut as a private Miami pathologist, the actress will take on the role of Cassie. According to Deadline, the character is a previously homeless teenage lesbian who has worked her way up to owning a restaurant. She is also Pippy’s (Gabrielle Dennis) childhood friend from a more troubling past.

During the second season, Mowry will be joined by Taye Diggs who also scored a recurring role on the drama series. Diggs will play Dr. Mike Boyce, an infectious disease doctor who is the best friend to Dr. Beaumont Rosewood (Chestnut’s character).

Rosewood airs on Wednesday, Nov. 25 on FOX at 8 p.m.
