Shonda Rhimes has completed the final piece of recasting on her new ABC drama The Catch, tapping Lost vet Sonya Walger to replace Bethany Joy Lenz in the series-regular role of Zoe, TVLine has learned.
Zoe, the wife and partner in crime to Kieran (fellow recast Peter Krause), loves her husband and loves their life — amoral though it may be — and she’s going to hang on tight as she senses him slipping away from her.
The Catch — which is set to bow at midseason — centers on Alice, a successful fraud investigator (The Killing‘s Mireille Enos) who’s about to be the victim of fraud herself by her fiancé Kieran (Krause). Between her cases, she is determined to find him before it ruins her career.
The Catch brings Walger back into the Shondaland fold following her two-episode arc on Scandal last season. It also reunites her with her Parenthood co-star Krause.
Hannibal scribe Jennifer Schuur penned the pilot, which is based on an idea by novelist Kate Atkinson and Helen Gregory.
