Behind Enemy Lines has enlisted CSI star Marg Helgenberger.

Fox announced Tuesday that the Emmy winner has joined the cast of the network’s pilot, which is loosely based on the 2001 film starring Owen Wilson.

Helgenberger, who starred as Catherine Willows on the first 12 seasons of CSI, will play Admiral Bobbie Decker, the highest-ranking woman in the military. Not one to mince words, Decker cares most about bringing her people home safely.

The pilot was written by Nikki Toscano (24: Legacy) and will be directed by McG (Charlie’s Angels). Described as “distinctively patriotic,” the prospective series will follow the many facets of the military, including those in Washington D.C., behind enemy lines, and on the nearby aircraft carrier.
