AiF member and Rake co-star Bojana Novakovic is in talks for the title role in ABC's upcoming drama pilot Agatha
Novakovic will play a reformed ex-con-turned-criminologist, recruited by the police to help solve a perplexing disappearance. Adding a twist, the Chief Detective she has been hired to help is her father, whom she hasn't spoken with in 15 years.
The procedural drama is being helmed by Jace Alexander (Rescue Me, Law & Order, The Blacklist).
Novakovic is currently playing Greg Kinnear's love interest in Fox's adaptation of the Australian drama Rake.
If Fox decides to renew Rake for a second season, the in-demand Novakovic will have to relinquish Agatha and ABC will have to recast the role.
