Katey Sagal to Star in Erin Brockovich-Inspired Drama from 'Grey's Anatomy' Showrunner

Katey Sagal is returning to TV!

The 66-year-old Sons of Anarchy actress has signed on to star in Rebel, a drama inspired by the life of activist Erin Brockovich today, Deadline reports.

The show, which has already received a pilot order from ABC, hails from Grey’s Anatomy executive producer/showrunner Krista Vernoff. Erin will also serve as an executive producer.

Here’s the show’s synopsis: “Rebel centers on Annie “Rebel” Bello (Sagal), a blue-collar legal advocate without a law degree. A funny, messy, brilliant and fearless woman who cares desperately about the causes she fights for and the people she loves. When Rebel applies herself to a fight she believes in, she will win at almost any cost.”

Julia Roberts won the Oscar for her portrayal of Erin in the 2000 movie Erin Brockovich.
