Posted on

Jamie Lee Curtis is the latest film star to migrate to a potential starring gig on CBS primetime.

Curtis has been cast in an untitled medical pilot from David Marshall Grant (Brothers & Sisters) that has her playing Caroline, the doctor-mom of quadruplets who grew up on a reality show. The drama script that’s in contention for fall 2014 is based on the Israeli format, Ran Quartet, and has been described as a soapy series.

The last time Curtis — who did an arc as Dr. Samantha Ryan on NCIS in 2012 — had a series regular role on TV was in Anything But Love in 1989. She’s also recurred as Jess’ mom on Fox’s New Girl.

Curtis also has a small role in the new Veronica Mars film.
