A&E Picks Up Katee Sackhoff Drama Longmire

It’s official: Katee Sackhoff is returning to TV.

A&E has given a 10-episode, first season order to Longmire, an hour-long Western-themed drama starring Matrix actor Robert Taylor as the show’s titular charismatic, dry-witted Wyoming sheriff. Sackhoff will play Vic, one of his deputies.

The series, based on the Walt Longmire Mystery series of novels by Craig Johnson, also stars Cassidy Freeman (Smallville) as Longmire’s daughter, Lou Diamond Phillips (Numb3rs) as his best friend, and Bailey Chase (Saving Grace) as another deputy.
