Don't call it a comeback, but Katherine Heigl is returning to the small screen.

Three years after she left Grey's Anatomy to focus on her family and work on her movie career, the 34-year-old is heading back to the small screen in a CIA drama.

TVLine reports that NBC has snapped up the rights to the untitled show, which the mother of two is producing.

She's set to play a CIA analyst whose job is to debrief and strategize with the president.



"The story is not only compelling and intelligent but a look behind the curtain at the CIA we haven't seen before in film or television," Heigl said in a statement. "I am thrilled and honored to be asked to be a part of developing these stories and this character and bringing it all to life."
