'Leverage's' Beth Riesgraf to Co-Star in CBS' 'Surgeon General'
The actress has joined Jason Isaacs in the medical drama from "Lie to Me's" Samuel Baum.
A Leverage star has found her next gig.
Beth Riesgraf, best known for portraying Parker on TNT's caper drama, will co-star with Jason Isaacs in CBS' drama pilot The Surgeon General, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The Surgeon General, from executive producer Samuel Baum (Lie to Me), follows Dr. John Sherman (Isaacs) as he steps into the highest medical office in the nation, attracted by the notion of nearly limitless resources, authority and impact on the health of all Americans.
Riesgraf will play Dr. Page Wyatt, an expert on micro-organisms. Sunny, off-beat and a nerd with moxie, she loves her job and practically lives in the lab. Katherine McNamara co-stars.
Baum will write and executive produce the CBS Television Studios entry. Rod Lurie will direct the pilot.
Repped by UTA, Riesgraf also played a key role on CBS' Criminal Minds as Maeve. She was on Leverage for five seasons before TNT canceled the drama in December.
