According to the hot-of-the-presses ABC press release, Cuthbert will play Maxine Denver, a “strong and successful Chicago professional who is forced to put her skepticism of ‘amateur detectives’ aside when The Forgotten Network begins investigating a case close to home.”
Cuthbert is slated to debut on the ratings-challenged freshman drama in February, which is not long after she wraps up her multi-episode 24 return.
Getting back to the question I posed in the headline: Can Kim Bauer save The Forgotten? Or at the very least, will she get you to start watching (if you’re not already)? And lastly, did you miss me while I was away?
