'NCIS' star will lead CBS' 'Dovekeepers'
Cote de Pablo is returning to CBS, albeit not necessarily in the way that certain rabid "NCIS" fans were once hoping for.
CBS announced this week that de Pablo will play one of four main women in Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's four-hour adaptation of Alice Hoffman's "The Dovekeepers."
Specifically, de Pablo will play Shirah, described by some as the Witch of Moab. Apparently she has powers or something, though its unclear what this has to do with the siege of Masada.
“We are thrilled to have Cote de Pablo starring in 'The Dovekeepers,'” blurbs Roma Downey. “Her talent, strength and beauty will light up the screen in the important role of Shirah.”
Yves Simoneau is directing "Dovekeepers" from a script by Ann Peacock.
