Odette Annable (The Astronaut Wives Club) is set as the female lead opposite Dermot Mulroney and Augustus Prew in Bunker Hill, CBS’ medical drama pilot written by Jason Katims and directed by David Semel.
The project follows James Bell (Prew), a young Silicon Valley tech titan who enlists Walter Wallace (Mulroney), a veteran surgeon with a controversial past, in starting a hospital with a cutting-edge “new school” approach to medicine. Annable will play Zoe (aka Alex), a forthright, idealistic physician at Bunker Hill, and a positive life force.
This marks Annable’s return to the medial drama field — she previously played Dr. Jessica Adams on hit Fox series House.
Annable recently starred on the ABC limited series Astronaut Wives Club and is currently recurring on the Fox comedy The Grinder. Her credits also include series Banshee and movie Cloverfield. She is repped by UTA and attorney Greg Gellman.
Semel executive produces Bunker Hill with True Jack Prods.’ Katims and Michelle Lee for Universal TV and CBS TV Studios.
