‘No Ordinary Family’ star Julie Benz joins CBS pilot
Posted Under: News & Announcements on March 24, 2011 • Leave a comment? / 1 Comment

Julie Benz has followed her “No Ordinary Family” co-star Michael Chiklis into the pilot-season fray, signaling further bad news for the ABC series.

Like Chiklis, who’s starring in CBS’ comedy “Vince Uncensored,” Benz has signed on to a pilot at the Eye, although hers is a drama. The untitled show stars Patrick Wilson as a surgeon who’s trying to re-order his life — with help from his late wife (Jennifer Ehle of “The King’s Speech”), who communicates with him from the afterlife.

Benz will play Wilson’s sister, a single mother who has myriad issues of her own, Deadline reports.

The CBS project (from “Erin Brockovich” and “The Soloist” screenwriter Susannah Grant) is in second position to “No Ordinary Family” for Benz, so if both were to make the schedule next season she’d be obligated to return to ABC. But given “NOF’s” modest ratings and the large number (14) of drama pilots ABC is developing, the odds of that happening aren’t especially high.

Benz’s previous credits include “Dexter,” “Desperate Housewives” and “Angel.”

Remember, Julie (as well as the rest of the NOF cast) have NOF as a priority and if by some grace of God the show gets a second season, Julie (as well as everyone else) will leave their new projects for NOF.

I wish the best for Julie and her career. NOF is fun to watch but the ratings have been very low. If NOF does not return I’m very happy to hear that she’s signed onto a new pilot over at CBS. I will follow Julie’s career! She is the best!
