Katherine Heigl, who recently starred in a NyQuil ZzzQuil commercial and known for being difficult to work with, is "thrilled" to make her television return in a new NBC CIA show.
The former "Grey's Anatomy" star will be starring in the new drama, and released a statement about how excited she is to be coming back to TV after a years in movies.
"I have been passionate about, and enthralled by, this project from the moment Hank, Rodney and Bob brought it to me over a year ago. The story is not only compelling and intelligent but a look behind the curtain at the CIA we haven't seen before in film or television," Heigl said. "I am thrilled and honored to have been asked to be a part of developing these stories and this character and bringing it all to life. NBC has been a true partner in their passion and support for the show that we've dreamed of making and I could not be happier about joining forces with them. Together, with our brilliant writer Alexi Hawley, I believe we are going to make great television!"
This month, the actress is being criticized for being demanding to work with on movie sets, including her manager mom, who's said to give producers a hard time.
A source who worked with the "Knocked Up" star told The Hollywood Reporter the actress is no fun to deal with.
"She can cost you time every single day of shooting," the source said. "Wardrobe issues, not getting out of the trailer, questioning the script every single day."
Heigl's untitled NBC drama was announced by the network this month.
