Erika Christensen ABC Pilot

Parenthood‘s Erika Christensen will dip her toe back into darker, Swimfan-esque waters with a lead role on the ABC pilot L.A. Crime.

A character-driven “true crime” procedural, L.A. Crime‘s first season will focus on two cops in search of a Bonnie & Clyde-esque pair of serial killers amidst the rock-and-roll, cocaine-infused revelry of the 1980s Sunset Strip.

Per our sister site Variety, Christensen will play Betty, a nurse and single mom who meets, is enamored with and ultimately forms a dangerous partnership with a man named Kent.

In addition to her recently wrapped run as Julia Braverman, Christensen’s TV credits include Six Degrees, Lie to Me and Robot Chicken voice work.
