Head securely reattached, Natalie Dormer is heading back to the small screen.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dormer has landed the female lead in “Masterwork,” a globetrotting drama from the “Prison Break” team.

Dormer will play an MI5 agent (the trade paper helpfully clarifies “a female MI5 agent”) who teams with an FBI agent (“a male FBI agent”) to travel the world recovering artifacts. 

Most familiar to American TV audiences as the bewitching Anne Boleyn from “The Tudors,” Dormer’s other credits include the features “Casanova” and “Flawless.”

In other casting news, Sara Rue has joined ABC’s “Eastwick,” playing the best friend to one of the title witches, specifically the one played by Lindsay Price. The high-profile pilot other features Rebecca Romijn and Jaime Ray Newman.

Rue was most recently seen on TNT’s “Leverage” and CBS’ “Big Bang Theory,” though she’s still best known from either ABC’s “Less Than Perfect” or The WB’s “Popular.”
