EXCITING NEWS! MARG JOINS THE CAST OF FOX’S “BEHIND ENEMY LINES” PILOT

It looks like Marg may be headed back to the small screen.  It was announced this evening that she will be joining the cast of FOX’s pilot ‘Behind Enemy Lines’.  There aren’t too many details to report yet, but here’s what we know so far.

 

CSI vet Marg Helgenberger is heading Behind Enemy Lines as a “fierce but fair” Navy Admiral in Fox’s McG-directed pilot.

Loosely based on the 2001 Owen Wilson/Gene Hackman movie, the Fox project is described as a military soap thriller wherein a group of U.S. soldiers find themselves trapped — you guessed it — behind enemy lines. The “distinctly patriotic series” will offer a multi-perspective narrative that follows soldiers on the ground, the officers and service men and women on a nearby aircraft carrier and intelligence officers in D.C. as they attempt to bring our heroes home safely and under the radar.

Helgenberger — a five-time Emmy nominee and 1990 winner — will play Navy Admiral Bobbie Decker, the most powerful woman in the military and a “no B.S.” straight shooter who will do anything to keep her men and women safe. Previously, B.J. Britt (UnREAL, Agents of SHIELD) was cast in the pilot as Reggie Mitchella, a weapons systems officer.

In addition to her long run as CSI Catherine Willows, Helgenberger’s previous TV credits include Under the Dome, CBS’ one-and-done Intelligence, ER, China Beach and Ryan’s Hope.

MORE BEHIND-THE-SCENES PHOTOS FROM THE LITTLE FOXES PHOTOSHOOT

So many wonderful Marg goodies this week. Courtesy of Arena Stage, we now have 6 behind-the-scenes photos from Marg’s photoshoot with photographer Tony Powell for The Little Foxes. I just can’t get over how gorgeous Marg is in this costume. I’m really hoping that they’ll be selling some kind of prints or posters for the play because I’d love to have a collectible from this shoot.
