WGN America have cast Alex Mera (Suicide Squad) in crime drama Scalped.

A modern-day crime story set in the world of a Native American reservation, Scalped explores power, loyalty and spirituality in a community led by the ambitious Chief Lincoln Red Crow as he reckons with Dashiell Bad Horse (Meraz), who has returned home after years away from the reservation.

Meraz is himself a member of the Purepecha (Tarasco) First Nation of Michoacan, Mexico. The show is based on the DC graphic novel and will feature a predominantly Native American cast.
