Night Shift is described as an ensemble medical show following Army doctors working the late shift at a San Antonio Hospital. Alonso will play Dr. Landry Miller, a sexy, cool, fun-loving and tough Texas girl. As the lone psychiatrist on the weekend night shift at the busy San Antonio hospital’s emergency department, she sees it all -- and thrives on it. The only thing crazier than her cases is the family she grew up in. On the surface, she has her act together but underneath it, she's a bit of a mess -- making her a natural fit with her night-shift colleagues.

The drama, which does not yet have a premiere date on NBC's 2013-14 schedule, stars Brigid Brannagh, Eoin Macken, Freddy Rodriguez, Jeananne Goossen, Jill Flint, Ken Leung, Robert Bailey Jr., Brendan Fehr and JR Lemon. Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (Life as We Know It) penned the Sony Pictures Television pilot and will executive produce alongside Pierre Morel, who directed the pilot.

Alonso, whose credits also include My Generation and Friday Night Lights as well as feature The Hills Have Eyes, is repped by Gersh and Luber Roklin.
