In the new show, Rios, will play Alice Calderon, a tough, rookie LA police officer – ‘who grew up in the streets of South Central, LA, in the neighborhood that she patrols. She has to balance the tough situation of policing a community she grew up in, and deal with the ramifications, and the attitudes and tactics of the police force she works for.’

Rios made her acting debut in double Sundance award-winner Quinceanera. Known for her work on Breaking Bad as Andrea Cantillo, her other TV credits include The Bridge and a recurring role this season on True Detective. She can also be seen in indie feature Paint It Black, directed by Amber Tamblyn.

In 2014, she publical came out, saying that being a Latina and coming out to her family was not an issue.

Mexican-Americans especially — because this generation, we come into America, and your family wants to be proud,” Rios said. “My mom didn’t want me to live a difficult life. She brought me here for a better one, so she’s like, ‘You’re coming out … I want you to be comfortable.’”
