Another familiar Hollywood star has been cast in fall TV pilot: Minnie Driver has landed one of the lead roles in CBS’ drama Hail Mary.

Driver will play a suburban single mom who teams up with a street-smart hustler to solve crimes.

The Atlanta-based Warner Bros. pilot has showrunner Ilene Chaiken on board, who created Showtime’s The L Word, along with exec producers Joel Silver and Jeff Wadlow. Driver’s last regular series gig was on FX’s The Riches and last year she appeared in an episode of Modern Family.
