Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) is in final negotiations to play another character with unusual abilities - a witch - in a new CBS drama pilot.
Yahoo! reported by way of The Hollywood Reporter that Ryan and Kim Delaney were both lined up to appear in the new pilot Sudbury.
The two acclaimed television actresses would play sisters, both witches.
For the past three years, Ryan has starred on Fox's Boston Public, which was cancelled for next season due to declining ratings.
