An ABC spokesperson confirms to TVLine that Coppola, who you’ll most likely remember as Jericho‘s Mimi Clark, has been cast as Linda Gerraty, the much-talked about but never seen former wife of Michael Imperioli’s Fitch.
No word on how many episodes Coppola will appear in, but should Detroit be granted a second season, the actress will recur on the drama series.
Coppola is currently working on Common Law, a new pilot by her former Jericho producer Jon Turteltaub. If the pilot is picked up, she will recur as a pathologist who has a history with Law‘s leading man, Michael Ealy (The Good Wife).
But wait, there’s even more Coppola to come, when she guests on the February 14 episode of Castle.
Detroit 1-8-7 airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on ABC.
