Sarah Shahi is set to star in an upcoming ABC legal drama pilot.

The 43-year-old actress, who currently stars in the hit Netflix series Sex/Life, will lead the new show Judgement for ABC.

Deadline says that Sarah “will be able to reprise her role [in Sex/Life], subject to availability as Judgement now has her in first position.”

Judgement is billed as “a high-stakes legal soap that redefines the genre by playing out over two timelines. Fifteen years from now, a woman (Shahi) being vetted for a Supreme Court seat recounts her experience at a prominent D.C. law firm in 2023, where the only thing more controversial than the cases was her messy love life, caught between two feuding brothers. Now, with a Supreme Court seat on the line, all of her darkest secrets are at risk of coming out, threatening her nomination, her reputation, and her marriage.”

The show will follow Sarah‘s character “Mia Bahari in two distinct periods of her life. In one, she’s a brilliant, successful Appeals Court judge being vetted for the U.S. Supreme Court…so long as her dark and painful secrets don’t derail the nomination. In another, she’s a young spitfire of an attorney, painfully awkward at times but ingenious when it comes to navigating the many nuances of the law. She’s also caught romantically between two feuding brothers who are at the root of the very things she’s trying to hide from her Supreme Court investigators.”

Sarah previously appeared on ABC’s The Rookie and Showtime’s City On a Hill.
