Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) has been given the starring role in a new crime drama pilot for ABC, according to the Hollywood Reporter. She will play “a beautiful female detective” in the still untitled pilot; THR says “it’s understood” that her current role on Fox’s 24 would not interfere with her moving to this series.
