Katherine Heigl is back in the TV business.
The rumors that the Grey's Anatomy alum would be returning to the small screen were true, as NBC announced today that they have acquired the rights to the untitled CIA drama starring and executive produced by Heigl.
"The story is not only compelling and intelligent but a look behind the curtain at the CIA we haven't seen before in film or television," Heigl said in a statement. "I am thrilled and honored to have been asked to be a part of developing these stories and this character and bringing it all to life. NBC has been a true partner in their passion and support for the show that we've dreamed of making and I could not be happier about joining forces with them. Together, with our brilliant writer Alexi Hawley, I believe we are going to make great television!"
