The 35-year-old star will be seen in the lead role of a CIA officer on the show which is directed by Joe Carnahan, the maker of movies like ‘Nemesis’ and ‘The Grey’.
The network has officially picked up the CIA drama to pilot, more than three months after NBC landed the project following a multiple network bidding war, reported The Hollywood Reporter.
The drama revolves around a 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.
