Lost Vet Maggie Grace Exits CBS' Medical Drama Pilot Code Black

Maggie Grace Code Black

Maggie Grace is checking out of Code Black.

The Lost grad has exited CBS’ medical drama pilot for creative reasons, TVLine has learned exclusively. The role will be recast.

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 was slated to play 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 Kannokada.

    YES. Maybe she’ll land a sci-fi/fantasy project. Was so uninterested in Code Black, now I can forget about its existence entirely! w00t!

    I think there is room for only one ER drama and that is “The Night Shift”! Nobody wants to see politics in a medical show that take place in ER! This is going be a looser! CBS better off making it a medical drama instead of a “Madam Secretary”!

    • Temperance says:

      Madame Secretary is actually pretty good if you like that particular blend. It is apparently good enough to be renewed (unlike the long series of generic, bland, utterly forgettable medical shows). But, hey. both MS an NS make CSI Miami look like Shakespeare.

      Night Shift will likely be a goner soon and replaced by Chicago Med

    You transposed your vowels. It’s Kannokada. not Kannakoda.

    Looks like Maggie Grace’s role is about to be “taken” by someone else.

  5. Dennis says:

    Nooooooooo I love her!

  6. RichieS says:

    She was great in Californication. Should’ve ended up with Hank Moody.

  7. Melissa says:

    She was fired!

  8. ER residency director is a miscast in so many ways. MG is not a good enough actress (yet) to be a lead in TV any show. I see it in 2-5 years otherwise she will have a Krysten Ritter TV.career.

    I really like the show I hope it stuck around.
