Sasha Alexander

NCIS alumna Sasha Alexander, who was killed at the close of the CBS drama's second season, has signed on to star in a new comedy pilot for the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Alexander will play the lead, Emily Atwood, in The Karenskys, a multi-camera show focusing on the ever-popular sitcom premise of family dysfunction. After her husband's job relocation moves them back to her hometown, Atwood is reunited with her large, loud and meddling clan, much to her spouse's chagrin.

Joining the actress on the pilot is Tinsley Grimes as Atwood's sister-in-law, Anne-Marie, who is an on-screen Angelina Jolie of sorts, having seven children in six years.

Alexander, who also played Pacey's sister on Dawson's Creek, can next be seen on the big screen in the Jim Carrey laugher Yes Man.
