Katherine Heigl may be returning to the small screen.
The Grey's Anatomy alum will executive-produce and star in a new CIA drama that has been acquired by NBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The untitled project is described as "Scandal meets The West Wing" and tells the story of a CIA officer who is chosen to give the president a daily briefing and handle the most dangerous threats to America, THR reports. The Following's Alexi Hawley will write and executive-produce.
Heigl was reportedly approached for the role more than a year ago.
"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," she told THR. 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."
