Jeri Ryan, best known to Star Trek fans as Star Trek: Voyager‘s Seven of Nine, has been cast in ABC’s Body of Evidence.
Body of Evidence features a “brilliant, tenacious” medical examiner, whose background as a neurosurgeon gives her a “unique and refreshing” crime-solving perspective, but puts her at odds with most of her colleagues. The main role has not been cast yet, but talks with Dana Delany (China Beach, Desperate Housewives) are ongoing.
Ryan, who has a recurring role on TNT’s Leverage, will play the city’s chief medical examiner, who is the boss of the main character of the show.
