natalie martinez under the domeNatalie Martinez is keeping alive her streak of playing TV law-enforcers.

The actress, currently recurring on CSI: NY as Det. Jamie Lovato, has been cast in CBS’ upcoming Under the Dome as Linda, a young, ambitious deputy who is fiercely loyal to Sheriff Duke Perkins, the man who runs a tight ship in the town of Chester’s Mill.

The 13-episode Under the Dome is based on Stephen King’s 2009 novel of the same name, in which a community finds itself trapped beneath a massive, transparent barrier. The situation soon turns to chaos.

Martinez previously played Det. Ariana Sanchez on Detriot 1-8-7, and had big-screen roles in End of Watch and Death Race.

In related news, Alex Koch has been cast as Junior Rennie, son of the local politician and car dealer; Junior is described as “a smart, secretly deeply disturbed college freshman who’s desperately in love with local waitress Angie,” who wants out of Chester’s Mill.

Under the Dome is produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and will premiere Monday, June 24, at 10/9c.

    Good, I don’t like her on NY. Hope it means she’s leaving there and finds a better fit.

    they are already fracking it up by changing it to much from the book. ugh. at this point i dont want a movie or tv show based on the dark tower books i shudder to think how much they would frack that up.

    SHe is just horrible on this show. I don’t mind the character, but her voice annoys me, and her acting is….questionable.

    I miss Detroit 1-8-7. It wasn’t given a fair shake.

    I hope this show is great. I loved the book although the ending was not my favorite (but sometimes I think Stephen King has trouble ending his books)

    Well, I hope she stays on CSI NY. I like her and her and Flack have chemistry.
