Katee Sackhoff has found another series. Since Battlestar Galactica ended three years ago, the actress has bounced around from NBC’s short-lived Bionic Woman to stints on Fox’s 24 to CBS’ CSI.

Now A&E has given a series order to her latest project, Longmire – described as a contemporary crime thriller from the producers of TNT’s The Closer. She’ll play a Philadelphia detective transferred to a small Wyoming town. Also in the cast: Robert Taylor and Lou Diamond Phillips. Longmire is set to become A&E’s fourth drama following The Beast, The Glades and Breakout Kings and will premiere next year.
