Ally Walker has been tapped as the lead in Lifetime’s drama pilot Exit 19. The project, from writer Jeff Bell, follows single mother Gloria Shepherd (Walker) as she juggles her demanding personal and professional lives raising two children while working as a New York Police Department homicide detective. The project, from ABC Studios and CBS TV Studios, was originally developed at CBS during the 2007-2008 season when it was ordered as a pilot presentation with Geena Davis as the lead. Walker, who starred on NBC’s Profiler and HBO’s Tell Me You Love Me, has recurred as ATF Agent June Stahl on the FX drama Sons of Anarchy.
