Jeanine Mason is headed to The CW. Deadline reports the Grey’s Anatomy star has joined the network’s upcoming Roswell reboot pilot.
The original series followed a group of teens who live in the small town of Roswell, New Mexico—the site of the famous UFO incident. The cast included Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino, Nick Wechsler, William Sadler, Colin Hanks, and Emilie de Ravin. The show ran on The WB from 1999-2001 and then switched to UPN for the 2001-2002 season.
On Roswell, Mason will play the lead role of Liz Ortecho, “a jaded biomedical researcher and the daughter of undocumented immigrants, is haunted by a tragic incident. She discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: He’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life.”
The CW‘s Roswell reboot comes from writer Carina Adly MacKenzie and The Originals‘ creator Julie Plec is set to direct.
