Pilots: Lauren Ambrose Rounds Out Cast of ABC's '70s-Set Broad Squad

Lauren Ambrose ABC Pilot

Six Feet Under alum Lauren Ambrose has landed the fourth and final lead on ABC’s Broad Squad pilot.

Penned by CSI: NY alum Bess Wohl and exec-produced by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the drama project follows four women who graduate from Boston’s Police Academy in 1978.

Ambrose — who this Thursday made her debut on USA Network’s DIG event series — will play Eileen, our sister site Deadline reports, alongside Rutina Wesley (True Blood), Charlotte Spencer (the UK’s Glue miniseries) and Cody Horn (Rescue Me, The Office).

Also boarding the pilot are Kenneth Mitchell (Jericho), as Eileen’s husband/a sidelined fellow police officer, and Michael Gaston (The Mentalist), as the precinct captain.
