India-born actor and producer Mouzam Makkar will be seen next in ABC’s new legal drama, The Fix.
As the next promising Indian face on American TV, Makkar plays Loni Kampoor, a Deputy District Attorney, in The Fix. The series makes its season premiere on Monday, March 18, on ABC.
Those who have been watching American TV may know that this is not exactly Makkar’s first big role. She was seen last year on NBC’s Champions, which was co-created by another Indian American – Mindy Kaling.
The Fix is a legal thriller from ABC studios and O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark. It is co-written by Clark, Sarah Fain and Elizabeth Craft. The plot follows the professional highs and lows of prosecutor Maya Travis (Robin Tunney), who loses an important case, leading to her downfall in the media. Travis decides to shift from Los Angeles to a quiet neighborhood in Oregon. But 8 years later, she must renew her career from where she left it, as the murderer strikes again. Makkar as Loni Kampoor, is the Deputy District Attorney and the lead attorney in the murder.
Makkar was born in India, raised in the United Arab Emirates, and hopped the pond in her adolescence to finally settle in Chicago. She started out in investment banking and private equity but has since found her true calling in acting and writing.
Makkar's TV credits include recurring guest star roles on FOX's The Following & El Rey's Matador, and guest starring roles on NBC's Law & Order: SVU, FOX's Bones and CBS' Stalker.
