CODE, THE (CBS) - Anna Wood and Ato Essandoh are the latest additions to the drama pilot, in which the military's brightest minds take on our country's toughest challenges - inside the courtroom and out - where each attorney is trained as a prosecutor, a defense lawyer, an investigator - and a Marine.

Essandoh then plays Trey Ferry: "Southern, stolid and wise, Major Ferry prefers to let his actions do the talking - but if a dialogue is required, he'll proudly demonstrate his impressive eloquence and tact. As an active duty Marine and a lawyer at Quantico, he pursues suspects with ferocity but makes sure his own people are held accountable." (Deadline.com)

Whigham will portray Thomas Carrasco, "an awkward bureaucrat investigating the Homecoming Transitional Support Center"; with Chau as Audrey Temple, "an ambitious assistant at Geist Emergent Group"; White as Shrier, "he and Walter were soldiers in the same unit and are now clients at the Homecoming facility"; and Poitier as Lydia, "Colin's (Bobby Cannavale) intelligent, savvy wife." (Deadline.com)
