Cold Case‘s Kathryn Morris is eyeing a CBS comeback as the female lead in the network’s Surgeon General pilot, TVLine has learned.
The project, written and produced by Lie to Me creator Samuel Baum, revolves around “America’s doctor” (as portrayed by Awake‘s Jason Isaacs).
Morris, whose seven-season run as Cold Case detective Lilly Rush came to a close in 2010, will play Lydia, the SG’s Chief of Staff.
The cast also includes Disney Channel staple Katherine McNamara (as the SG’s daughter) and Leverage‘s Beth Riesgraf (as microorganisms expert Dr. Page Wyatt).Follow @MichaelAusiello
