Pilot season is upon us and new casting is happening all over the place. In recent news, Once Upon a Time alumnus, Jennifer Morrison, has been cast as the lead in a CBS medical drama entitled Under the Bridge! Check out Morrison’s new role below:

Once Upon a Time and House alum Jennifer Morrison is eyeing a full-time return to your TV screen, with the lead role in CBS’ Under the Bridge drama pilot.

Penned by Rina Mimoun (Mistresses, Everwood), the project follows Caitlin Lancaster, a cardiothoracic surgeon who, when a scandal rocks the medical practice she runs with her husband and their friends, rises to the occasion and takes the lead in trying to mend both the business and her own marriage.

Morrison’s Cait is described as a surgeon who has managed to be ambitious without offending anyone. Curious, open, but never naive, she is pulled away from a self-imposed sabbatical when her (yet-to-be-cast) husband Michael is voted out of the medical practice they founded.
