Katee Sackhoff has signed on for the lead role in a yet untitled pilot for ABC.
Sackhoff, best known as Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica
, will be working with producer Richard Hatem, who previously worked on the set of Supernatural
and Tru Calling
. In the pilot, Sackhoff plays a beautiful female detective who teams up with a disgraced former cop to solve crimes and, in the long run, uncover the conspiracy that led to the former cop's downfall.
24: Live Another Day is available on Amazon Prime.
Sackhoff, who currently stars as troubled CTU analyst Dana Walsh on 24
, was understood to have fielded multiple pilot offers before taking the crime drama, The Hollywood Reporter said
. It is also understood that her character's storyline on the Fox action series is expected to conclude in such a way that Sackhoff would be available for new pilots, even if 24
returns for a ninth season.
It's nice seeing Starbuck, err Dana, err Katee take on a series of her own, never mind that it's another cop series. What's your take?
