Mark plays Chicago police officer Johnny Logan and stars alongside Courtney B. Vance (Law & Order: Criminal Intent, American Crime Story), Aunjanue Ellis (Quantico, King Richard), Tosin Cole (Star Wars: Episode VII, Doctor Who) and Andrene Ward-Hammond (Project Power, Your Honor). 61st Street is produced by Michael B. Jordan and premiered on Sunday, April 10 on AMC. The first 2 episodes are currently available on AMC+, and there will be a total of 8 with the final episode airing on May 29, 2022.

About 61st Street
“From AMC Studios, 61st Street is a propulsive thriller which courses through the dark heart of the infamous Chicago criminal justice system, as police and prosecutors investigate a deadly drug bust that threatens to unravel the police department’s code of silence.”
