Battlestar Galactica 's feisty and beloved Starbuck, played by Katee Sackhoff, will now be Lost and Found on NBC.

Sackhoff has snagged the lead role in the new Dick Wolf-produced pilot, which was created by L&O scribe Chris Levinson, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The hour-long drama centers on offbeat LAPD detective Tessa (Sackhoff), who, after butting heads with her bosses, is sent - Fox Mulder-style - to the basement to work on John/Jane Doe cases.

After playing the tragically flawed Starbuck for four seasons on Sci Fi's Battlestar, "offbeat" will probably be a breath of fresh air for Sackhoff.
