‘Battlestar Galactica’ Star Lands NBC Pilot

You’ve seen her on the sci-fi hit Battlestar Galactica as the doggedly hot-headed Captain Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrace, but actress Katee Sackhoff is ready to move on to a different role.  The 29-year-old star has been tapped to star in an NBC series titled Lost and Found, and has already filmed the pilot episode in January this year.

While there haven’t been any reports on whether or not the show has been picked up, Sackhoff’s latest effort has already provoked enough buzz.  Playing the lead role of an off-beat cop, the Saturn Award-winner and the new show might just have a fighting chance for a slot on NBC’s fall schedule.

Sources have revealed that Sackhoff’s character on Lost and Found doesn’t fall far from Starbuck at all.  Both women are powerful and commanding, in addition to having an insatiable desire to take on unusual tasks.  Joining Sackhoff in the series is Brian Cox, who will serve as her partner-against-crime.

Created by Chris Levinson, Lost and Found will be produced by the Emmy Award-winning Dick Wolf, known for his work behind Miami Vice and Law & Order.  The Sackhoff-led series will be following the escapades of Tessa, a female LAPD detective who has a hard time dealing with authority figures.  After confronting her higher-ups, she is punished by being forced to work on John Doe and Jane Doe cases.  Facing these anonymous victims might be a daunting task for Tessa, but she is determined to get to the bottom of things.

Though she’s best known as Starbuck on Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica, Katee Sackhoff has been on the entertainment circuit for quite some time.  She was cast as the evil cyborg Sarah Corvus in the short-lived Bionic Woman, working for NBC as well.  Sackhoff has also appeared in films like White Noise 2: The Light and other series such as Cold Case, Nip/Tuck and Wolf’s Law & Order.
