Kal Penn is the first actor to be cast in CBS’ Battle Creek, a detective drama from Breaking Bad mastermind Vince Gilligan and House creator David Shore, EW has confirmed.

This marks a reunion for Penn — best known for the Harold & Kumar movies — and Shore, who worked together on House from 2007 to 2012. While the series will focus on the relationship between a detective and an FBI agent in Battle Creek, Michigan, Penn plays a different detective who bumps heads with the fed.

Battle Creek is set to debut in the fall on CBS. The casting news was first reported by Deadline.

Battle Creek

Two detectives with different views on the world team up and using cynicism, guile and deception, they clean up the streets of Battle Creek.
