There will be a meeting of the sci-fi minds as former The Walking Dead star Sarah Wayne Callies will be joining the cast of Colony, the new USA Network pilot from former Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse. Another Lost alum, Josh Holloway, will also be starring in the drama, which takes place in a modern day Los Angeles that is being occupied by alien invaders.

In her first TV role since The Walking Dead, Callies will be playing Katie Bowman, a mother of three and wife to Holloway’s former FBI agent Will Bowman, who seeks to protect his family by collaborating with the alien government to fight the human resistance forces.

Hopefully Callies’ character does not end up in a jail of any sort, seeing as how her last two big roles — as Dr. Sara Tancredi on Prison Break and Lori Grimes on The Walking Dead — did not fare so well in such a setting.
