Financial times have been tough for Katherine Heigl lately – she’s been out begging left and right for financing on an independent film project, suing drug stores, complaining about how much money she doesn’t have… you know the drill. Well, things are taking a turn for the better, because ol’ KHeig (I know, not a thing) is headed back to TV!
From E! Online:
NBC announced Tuesday that Heigl will star and and executive produce a new CIA drama called State of Affairs. This marks the actress’ first TV project since leaving Grey’s Anatomy in 2010.
Described as Scandal meets The West Wing, the upcoming drama revolves around a CIA officer (Heigl), who becomes the president’s daily briefer. Heigl’s character (who’s name is TBA) will assume responsibility for targeting America’s most critical threats while navigating the unique lifestyle that comes with such a high-powered job. Damn, looks like Izzie Stevens has really stepped up her responsibilities in life!
Sounds… awful, but only because she’s the one starring in it.
