Pilot News: Jennifer Finnigan Is USA's Wild Card
Jennifer Finnigan is leaving her monotonous Better With You betrothed life in the past, in favor of some crazy Vegas antics as the star of Wild Card, a pilot for USA Network.
Per our sister site Deadline, Finnigan has landed the female lead in the procedural, which follows two Sin City lawyers as they solve the legal problems of its misbehaving inhabitants and visitors the morning after. The Deep End‘s Ben Lawson, who is currently recurring on Covert Affairs, co-stars as her legal counterpart.
Previously known for her work on Close to Home and before that The Bold and the Beautiful, Finnigan is the second member of the Better With You family to score a new gig following ABC’s cancellation of the freshman comedy: Her former onscreen fiancé, Josh Cooke, will recur on the upcoming sixth season of Showtime’s Dexter.
