Hot off a three-season run on Homeland, which earned her an Emmy nomination, Morena Baccarin has been tapped as the female lead in another drama project that deals with war veterans, ABC’s medical pilot Warriors, from writer Chris Keyser, Mandeville TV and ABC Studios. Inspired by the Walter Reed Military Medical Center, Warriors follow the best and brightest active-duty military doctors and nurses as they practice trailblazing medicine. Baccarin, repped by UTA, Seven Summits and Jackoway Tyerman, will play Tory, a psychiatrist and expert on PTSD who suffers a mild case herself having just returned from Afghanistan. This marks Baccarin’s return to ABC, where she starred on the sci-fi drama series V.
