Exclusive: Lifetime's Protector Collars Vivica Fox, Desperate Housewives' Jeffrey Nordling

Vivica Fox and Jeffrey Nordling are joining Lifetime’s The Protector in key roles, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Fox, who guest starred on the network’s Drop Dead Diva last year, will play Captain Lisa Novak, the ex-wife of Miguel Ferrer’s Lieutenant Felix Valdez. Her introduction in Episode 12 stirs things up at the precinct for Ally Walker’s single mom/homicide detective Gloria and the rest of the team.

But there’s some joy on the horizon for Gloria: Nordling is set to recur as a love interest for the character.

Nordling most recently appeared on In Plain Sight and Body of Proof, but is probably best known as the husband of Drea de Matteo’s Angie Bolen on Desperate Housewives.

The Protector airs Mondays at 10/9c.
