NBC’s ‘Found’ Adds Dionne Gipson To Season 2

EXCLUSIVE: NBC’s Found is adding Dionne Gipson (Dream Girls) to its Season 2 cast. She will recur as a character who is close to Gabi (Shanola Hampton).

The series, which hails from All American‘s Nkechi Okoro Carroll, follows public relations specialist Gabi Mosely and her crisis management team dedicated to finding missing persons, especially those often overlooked by the system. Gabi was once one of those forgotten ones, and is still hiding a chilling secret of her own – she has found her kidnapper, Sir, (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and uses his twisted expertise to help solve their cases. In any given year, more than 600,000 people are reported missing in the U.S. More than half that number are people of color that the country seems to forget about.

Gipson made her debut on the professional stage in the hit musical Dreamgirls at the 14th St. Playhouse in Atlanta, and since then has appeared in numerous plays, musicals, films and television shows.
