Ugly Betty’s America Ferrera to headline CBS pilot Damascus

America Ferrera, of “Ugly Betty” fame, has snapped up a new series.

She will play a justice-seeking Nun in the new CBS pilot “Damascus”, according to Deadline.

Damascus is the story of a crusading nun (Ferrera) who practices law on behalf of the least fortunate, and has her beliefs tested when her life collides with an elitist corporate lawyer. As the two set out to help those in need of justice, they come up against a secretive and powerful organization that is determined to destroy them.

Ferrera’s been on “The Good Wife” recently, and reprises that role this season.
