She will be playing, Lauren Marks, a mother and wife whose life has been turned upside down when she discovers that her husband, whom she previously thought had died in a plane crash, is very much alive! She must dive into a world shrouded with secrets, weapons, and crime to discover the truth. The script is written by Micheal Clooney who will continue to co-produce the possible series along with Peter Horton, Ian Sander, Kim Moses and Jon Cowan. Some of her co-stars are said to be Viola Davis and Kerry Washington.
The role is an important step for Patton, as it will be her first starring role in a network series, if the pilot is well received. It could mean a hit for ABC as well as a hit for Patton herself. It is also her first step back into the limelight after getting much attention from her separation from husband, Robin Thicke, last year.
It is not clear when the pilot will air.
