NBC Is Developing A CIA Drama That Will Star Katherine Heigl

NBC and Katherine Heigl have both had a… let’s say “weird” last few years, with the network tumbling into sub-Univision territory in the ratings and the actress going from burgeoning A-list movie star on a hit network drama to… let’s say “not that.” Now the two of them are teaming up to develop a CIA show. So…

The drama, described as Scandal meets The West Wing, revolves around a maverick CIA officer (Heigl) who was plucked from the field to become the president’s daily briefer, assuming responsibility for targeting America’s most critical threats while navigating the unique lifestyle that comes with such a high-powered job.

For the actress, the drama — should it go to series — would mark her return to the small screen following her breakout role as Izzie on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. Heigl left the drama in 2010 to pursue other opportunities following a creative clash with producers. [THR]

Hmmm. Katherine Heigl and NBC are making a White House/spy-type drama that sounds kind of like a popular show on another network that is run by her old boss from the show she left after said “creative crash with producers“? I can’t see anyone having a strong opinion about this. Nope. No siree. Just a normal, everyday story about people and networks that no one has ever said anything negative about. Don’t even know why I’m bringing it up, really.
