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.
