Sharon Leal just booked a co-starring role in an upcoming CBS drama. She will star alongside Alan Cumming and Bojana Novakovic in Instinct, which will debut midseason.

In the first iteration of the pilot, Khandi Alexander was cast in the role. Alexander has now departed from the project.

Based on the upcoming book by James Patterson and directed by Marc Webb, Instinct centers on Dylan (Cumming), a former CIA operative who has since built a “normal” life as a gifted professor and writer but is pulled back into his old life when the NYPD needs his help to stop a serial killer on the loose. Alexander will play Lizzi’s (Bojana Novakovic’s) police superior.

Leal was last seen on television screens during a stint in Supergirl, and she also starred in The CW’s Hellcats. This year, she also landed the lead in an untitled drama pilot from Jenny Lunet.
