The Astronaut Wives Club actress will play an upbeat young doctor named Zoe in Jason Katims’ CBS drama pilot, our sister site Deadline reports.
The potential series from the Friday Night Lights and Parenthood executive producer follows a young Silicon Valley tech titan (The Borgias‘ Augustus Prew) who enlists a veteran surgeon with a controversial past (Enlightened‘s Dermot Mulroney) in starting a hospital with a cutting edge, “new school” approach to medicine.
If it gets picked up, Bunker Hill would be Annable’s second medical drama in the last few years: She played Dr. Jessica Adams in the eighth and final season of Fox’s House. In addition to The Astronaut Wives Club, her other recent TV work includes Banshee, Rush and The Grinder.
