Made in Jersey‘s Toni Trucks is joining NBC’s upcoming Do No Harm on a recurring basis, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The actress, who played receptionist Cyndi Vega on the cancelled CBS legal drama, appeared in Do No Harm‘s pilot but couldn’t continue with the show due to her Jersey schedule.
Now that Trucks is free again, she’ll appear as Dr. Patricia Rivers in at least three additional episodes of the Jekyll-and-Hyde-inspired medical drama – which stars Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me) as a neurosurgeon with an alter ego who may not have the doc’s best interest at heart.
Trucks’ other TV credits include House, Veronica Mars and CSI: NY. She also played American Nomad vampire Mary in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2.
Do No Harm bows Thursday, Jan. 31 at 10/9c.
The fall TV season has seen its first casualty.
CBS has pulled Made in Jersey from its Friday-night lineup and will replace it with new episodes of Undercover Boss beginning Nov. 2, the network announced Wednesday.
NCIS reruns will take over the show’s time slot, Friday night at 8 p.m., this week and on Oct. 26. On Oct. 19, it will be replaced by a rerun of Hawaii Five-0. The revised schedule also moves CSI: NY to 9 p.m.
Made in Jersey, about a young attorney (Janet Montgomery) who tries to juggle her career at a high-powered Manhattan law firm with her brash Italian family back in New Jersey, struggled in its first two outings and was the lowest-rated new series of the fall.
A CBS spokesperson would not confirm that the lineup shuffle means the show has been definitively canceled, but it’s a pretty safe bet.
Are you sorry to see Made in Jersey go?
Made in Jersey has enlisted Eric Stoltz for November sweeps, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Stoltz will play Marcus Wheaton, the controlling leader of Wheaton Farms, a compound that houses a cult. Martina (Janet Montgomery) will represent the parents of a girl who ran away to live with the cult.
The 51-year-old actor-turned-director, who recently directed an episode of Made in Jersey has also helmed episodes of Glee, Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice.
Made in Jersey airs Fridays at 9/8c on CBS.
