Katheryn Winnick is teaming up with David E. Kelley for her first post-Vikings role. The actress has signed on to star in the upcoming ABC drama The Big Sky, Deadline reports.

Written and executive produced by Kelley, The Big Sky is a procedural thriller about P.I. Cassie Dewell and ex-cop Jenny Hoyt (Winnick), who investigate the kidnapping of two sisters (one of whom is the girlfriend of Jenny's son) by a truck driver in Montana. Cassie, Jenny, and Jenny's estranged husband -- another P.I. and Cassie's partner, Cody Hoyt (Ryan Phillippe) -- team up to work the case, only to learn that these aren't the only young women to have disappeared. The trio must try to stop the killer before they strike again. John Carroll Lynch and Dedee Pfeiffer also star.
