Brewster will play Sister Lisa. A resourceful nun in Rome with a sly sense of humor, Sister Lisa is good friends with Father Chuck Donnelly (Mark Gagliardi). While Father Chuck is on the trail of a mystery, he quickly comes to rely on Sister Lisa for information, as he knows that the Nuns are the eyes and ears of the Church. Brewster is wrapping up her role as Emily Prentiss in the 15th and final season of CBS’ Criminal Minds. She also recently recurred in Mom and will next be seen in Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood. She’s repped by The Burstein Company and UTA.
Sarah Minnich (Better Call Saul) is set to recur opposite Rosario Dawson in USA Network’s new crime anthology series Briarpatch, from writer-executive producer Andy Greenwald, executive producer Sam Esmail, Universal Cable Prods. and Paramount Television.

Minnich will play Ginger Galanti, the lead field reporter for Channel 8 in San Bonifacio, Texas. She’s got chops, moxie, and a chip on her shoulder the size of the Alamo. Minnich’s previous credits include AMC’s Better Call Saul, Lifetime’s Dying for a Baby and HBO’s Icebox. Minnich will next be seen in the indie film The Wave opposite Justin Long. Minnich is repped by The O’ Agency and Metric Talent & Literary Management.
