The Good Wife‘s Archie Panjabi is returning to to TV! She’s been signed to star in ABC’s new pilot legal eagle drama The Jury. Described a cross between 12 Angry Men meets the podcast Serial, the show will follow a single murder trail all season as seen through the eyes of the jurors.
Archie will be playing Kim Dempsey (please tell me she wont be white washed!) described as:
“…a force of nature cloaked in a professional demeanor. She’s not interested in making friends, she’s just interested in the truth. She’s a crusader — someone who’s always had/is always looking for a cause. She’s been accused of jumping from cause to cause in the past, and maybe that’s true, but nobody can accuse her of not doing a hell of a job while she was there. When we meet Kim in the pilot, it’s been less than a year since she was ripped from the cause she thought she’d champion until her death.”.
Sounds very different from her Good Wife badass character.
