TORONTO - CBC has added actress Rosie Perez to the cast of its upcoming Mennonite mob drama "Pure."

The public broadcaster says the U.S. star will play a DEA agent bent on taking down a gang leader, played by "Orphan Black" actor Peter Outerbridge.

The six-part drama stars "Arrow" actor Ryan Robbins as a Mennonite pastor battling drug trafficking within his community.

He's forced to get involved in the illegal operation when Outerbridge's mob boss threatens his family.

"Pure" also features "CSI: NY"'s AJ Buckley as a local cop.

CBC-TV says it's shooting in Nova Scotia until mid-November and will air the show next year.
