The actress, currently recurring on CSI: NY as Det. Jamie Lovato, has been cast in CBS’ upcoming Under the Dome as Linda, a young, ambitious deputy who is fiercely loyal to Sheriff Duke Perkins, the man who runs a tight ship in the town of Chester’s Mill.
The 13-episode Under the Dome is based on Stephen King’s 2009 novel of the same name, in which a community finds itself trapped beneath a massive, transparent barrier. The situation soon turns to chaos.
Martinez previously played Det. Ariana Sanchez on Detriot 1-8-7, and had big-screen roles in End of Watch and Death Race.
In related news, Alex Koch has been cast as Junior Rennie, son of the local politician and car dealer; Junior is described as “a smart, secretly deeply disturbed college freshman who’s desperately in love with local waitress Angie,” who wants out of Chester’s Mill.
Under the Dome is produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and will premiere Monday, June 24, at 10/9c.
