The River actress has been cast as the female lead in the network’s drama pilot Warriors, TVLine has learned.
Inspired by the state-of-the-art Walter Reed Military Medical Center, the project follows the best and brightest active-duty military doctors and nurses as they practice trailblazing medicine.
Chris Keyser (Party of Five) penned the pilot, which is based on an original teleplay by Steven Baigelman. Keyser will exec-produce alongside Mandeville Television’s David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Laurie Zaks.
Mumford’s other TV credits include Lone Star and another pilot for ABC, last season’s Reckless.
