Pilot News: Lost's Maggie Grace Boards CBS Medical Drama Code Black

Maggie Grace Code Black

Maggie Grace has booked her next major TV role, joining CBS’ medical drama pilot Code Black, our sister site Deadline reports.

Based on the festival award-winning Ryan McGarry documentary, Code Black is set in the busiest and most notorious ER in the nation — L.A. County Hospital — where the extraordinary staff confronts a broken system in order to protect their ideals and the patients who need them the most.

Grace is playing ER residency director Leanne, described as “a force of nature and a force to be reckoned with.” Previously announced cast members include Marcia Gay Harden and Melanie Kannakoda.

Since her days on the Island, Grace has appeared in numerous shows, including Californication and the web series Susanna. She’s also appeared in major movies, including the final two Twilight Saga installments.

    Love her, just watched the trailer for the documentary and it looks like a show id watch if they dont over dramatize it too much. From the trailer it looks like everything is already there for a great show, all the tension and drama and “charactery” people who have hard backstories and cocky/egotistical personalities yet are healers and great people in their own way…just add in some tension of certain doctors/nurses not liking each other and a romantic relationship here and there and you got a really nice ER show. But go overboard and you got Greys Anatomy…which might get great ratings but i wont watch that soapy crap.

      Not because it is soapy, means its crap; that is your opinion. Millions love the show

        Love triangles and ghosts and melodrama and cheating and unrealistic medical scenarios and people dying (main characters in totally unrealistic ways) etc….the show is garbage, even fans agree, it went from 18.5 million viewers in its first season to now 7.8 million on 2/12/2015.

        This show has the potential to be realistic, both in the medical problems/scenarios/situations/cases and in the characters acting like real human beings. I mean its not like doctors or nurses are boring…they do hook up, they do start dating and get married, they do quit to have a baby, they do get into fights, there are some doctors that are hated/strongly disliked, their are cocky doctors, super hunky doctors, super hot doctors…and a TON of racial diversity in the medical field (doctors/nurses).

    She was great in all three Taken movies. Really hope they’re not planning to do a Taken 4 (three is enough).
