Catherine Bell and Gary Cole have joined the cast of CBS's drama pilot Company Town, which revolves around government agents who live in the same Washington neighborhood.
Already on board are Blair Underwood and Sherry Strinfield.
For Bell, the project marks a return to the network after JAG, the long-running military drama on which Bell starred opposite David James Elliott.
Cole, who recurred as a presidential contender on NBC's The West Wing, is set to return to the White House soap for its final episodes.
Only days have passed since Seven announced the launch of its new "bloke" channel, 7mate, and now TEN has jumped on the bandwagon, with the announcement of its new channel, to be called *drumroll* Eleven. It will replace the existing One SD.
JAG (military-speak for Judge Advocate General) is an adventure drama about this elite legal wing of officers trained as lawyers who investigate, prosecute and defend those accused of crimes in the military, including murder, treason and terrorism. Navy Cmdr. Harmon "Harm" Rabb (David James Elliott), an ace pilot turned lawyer, and Marine Lt. Col. Sarah "Mac" MacKenzie (Catherine Bell), a beautiful by-the-book officer, are colleagues who hold the same high standards but find themselves clashing when they choose different routes to get to the same place. The unmistakable chemistry between them must be held at bay for professional reasons as they traverse the globe together with a single mission: to search for and discover the truth. Helping them with their mission is Navy Lt. Cmdr. Bud Roberts (Patrick Labyorteaux), a lawyer who proved his grit and determination when, after losing a leg in a land mine field while on a mission, fought back and became even better at his job, and Cmdr. Sturgis Turner (Scott Lawrence), a JAG lawyer who was Harm's friend at the Naval Academy and now has a friendly rivalry in and out of the courtroom with him, as well as with Lt. Cmdr. Roberts. Also on the team is P.O. Jennifer Coates (Zoe McLellan), formerly Admiral Chegwidden's outspoken assistant, and now assigned to help the new JAG settle into the job.moreless
