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.
