Two years after leaving Grey's Anatomy, Katherine Heigl is poised to return to television!
NBC has just picked up a new series from The Following writer Alexi Hawley that stars Heigl as a CIA analyst whose job it is to debrief and strategize with the president on the most pressing global and national matters, per TVLine.
"The story is not only compelling and intelligent but a look behind the curtain at the CIA we haven't seen before in film or television," Heigl said in a statement. "I am thrilled and honored to have been asked to be a part of developing these stories and this character and bringing it all to life. NBC has been a true partner in their passion and support for the show that we've dreamed of making and I could not be happier about joining forces with them. Together, with our brilliant writer Alexi Hawley, I believe we are going to make great television!"
