Homeland Emmy nominee Morena Baccarin has booked her follow-up gig.
The actress will star in ABC medical drama Warriors, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The drama is inspired by the state-of-the-art Walter Reed Military Medical Center and follows the best and brightest of active duty military doctors and nurses as they practice trailblazing medicine on critically wounded warriors returning home from Afghanistan, on military families and veterans as well as administering to Washington's government elite.
The actor, who plays Aiden on the ABC soap, has been tapped to star in the network's alien drama pilot The Visitors, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The role is in first position to Revenge, though his future with the veteran soap is still being determined.
Following a ho-hum 2013-14 season that saw ABC's sophomore drama Scandal break out into a bona fide hit, the five broadcast networks are again relying on the tried and true -- cops! doctors! romantic comedies! and comic book properties like Batman prequel Gotham andDC Comics' The Flash and supernatural dramas like alien invasion entry The Visitors -- in a bid to find the next water-cooler show.
