According to the Hollywood Reporter Ashley Judd is making her first foray into a regular TV series role by signing on to star in the new ABC drama "Missing."
The actress will play a worried mom who travels to Europe to find her son, who has disappeared in Italy while on a summer internship. It soon becomes clear that this isn't any ordinary woman, but a former CIA agent who will stop at nothing to bring her son home alive. The project, from Greg Poirier ("National Book of Treasures: Book of Secrets"), most likely be set for the fall. Judd previously appeared in the 1990s TV series "Sisters."
