Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra's debut series in Hollywood will premiere on ABC at 10.00 PM (EST) on Sunday, 27 September. The thriller series focuses on Chopra's Alex Parrish and other fresh FBI recruits like her, who enrol at the training Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

However, everything goes haywire when one of them gets accused of being the mastermind of the greatest attack on New York City since 9/11.

Many celebrated actors will be seen with the "Exotic" singer in "Quantico", including Rick Cosnett, best known as Eddie from "The Flash" and Anabelle Acosta of "Ballers" fame. Cosnett's character Rlias Harper is described as an incredibly funny and witty defence attorney who is openly gay. Meanwhile, Acosta plays Nathalie Vazsquez, a former cop who is driven, fierce and competitive, whose sole focus is to be the best at anything she does.

Other actors portraying some of the pivotal characters in the series are Jake McLaughlin as Ryan, Yasmine Al Massri as Nimah, Johanna Braddy as Shelby, Tate Ellington as Simon, Graham Rogers as Caleb, Aunjuane Ellis as Miranda Shaw and Josh Hopkins as Liam O'Conner.

The show will reportedly employ two different time-lines to narrate the story, one in the current and another in the near future. By the end of season 1 everyone will know who the real terrorist is, and if Alex Parrish really had anything to do with the NYC attacks.
