Monica Barbaro, who had her breakout role this summer as conniving undercover reporter Yael, a.k.a. "Hot Rachel" on Lifetime's UnReal, already has her next gig lined up. She's been cast as a series regular on Chicago Justice, the newest addition to NBC's Chicago franchise.
Barbaro will play an Assistant State's Attorney on the legal spin-off, Deadline reports. There was another ASA on the Chicago Justice backdoor pilot on Chicago P.D. played by Nazneen Contractor. Contractor left the show for the CBS drama series Ransom last month, but Barbaro will not be taking over Contractor's role of ASA Dawn Patel.
Chicago Justice is scheduled to premiere in January 2017.
