Well this is quite the comeback!
Katherine Heigl, best known for her five-year stint on ABC's Grey's Anatomy, is officially making her way back to the small screen this fall. NBC announced Tuesday that Heigl will star and and executive produce a new CIA drama called State of Affairs. This marks the actress' first TV project since leaving Grey's Anatomy in 2010.
Described as Scandal meets The West Wing, the upcoming drama revolves around a CIA officer (Heigl), who becomes the president's daily briefer. Heigl's character (who's name is TBA) will assume responsibility for targeting America's most critical threats while navigating the unique lifestyle that comes with such a high-powered job. Damn, looks like Izzie Stevens has really stepped up her responsibilities in life!
