Dick Wolf Grabs Another BSG Alum

Apparently it wasn’t enough for Dick Wolf to grab Jamie Bamber (Lee “Apollo” Adama, Battlestar Galactica) for the UK version of Law & Order.

Now, he seems to have snapped up Katee Sackhoff (Kara “Starbuck” Thrace, Battlestar Galactica) for the pilot for his new show “Lost and Found.” Personally, I think it’s a great choice!

Here’s the scoop from The Hollywood Reporter:

Katee Sackhoff in Wolf-produced pilot
Hour series centers on offbeat LAPD detective

Katee Sackhoff is "Lost and Found" at NBC.

The "Battlestar Galactica" star has been tapped as the lead in the network's Dick Wolf-produced pilot, created by Chris Levinson.

The hourlong "Found," produced by Wolf Films and Universal Media Studios, centers on Tessa (Sackhoff), an offbeat female LAPD detective who, after butting heads with the higher-ups, is sent as a punishment to the basement to work on John Doe and Jane Doe cases.

The casting of Sackhoff means a firm production order for the pilot, which was picked up last month as cast-contingent.

Chris Levinson, who originally developed the show during the 2006-07 development season, is exec producing "Found" with Wolf and Wolf Films' Nena Rodrigue and Peter Jankowski.

Sackhoff, best known for her starring role as Kara "Starbuck" Thrace on "Battlestar," co-starred on the NBC/UMS drama series "Bionic Woman" last season.

The actress, repped by Endeavor, manager Leland Labarre and attorney Darren Trattner, next recurs on the upcoming season of FX's "Nip/Tuck."
