Image Credit: Andrew H. Walker/Getty ImagesOne Tree Hill alum Michaela McManus has scored the female lead in The CW’s promising Alias-esqe pilot Nomads, sources confirm to me exclusively.

The underrated McManus, who followed up her OTH run with a year-long stint as ADA Kim Greylek on Law & Order: SVU, will play a brave and resourceful Army Brat determined to earn a place in the CIA. She finds herself fighting an attraction to her handler (Mental‘s Warren Kole) and a fellow agent-in-training (Friday Night Lights‘ Scott Porter).

Nomads follows a group of young backpackers who earn extra money working secret missions for the CIA. Ken Sanzel (Numb3rs) wrote the script and is directing the pilot.
