Everwood’s number one doctor is heading back to primetime.
The women’s network will soon be launching what it calls a “compelling new scripted series” titled Against the Wall, starring Treat Williams (Everwood), Rachael Carpani (The Glades) and Emmy winner Kathy Baker (Medium).
The series follows the trials and tribulations of Abby Kowalski (Carpani), a single Chicago police officer who finally scores her dream job as a detective; but it turns out to be a nightmare for her close-knit family of cops.
As the newest hire in the department’s Internal Affairs division, Abby suddenly finds herself at odds with her fellow officers, including her father and three brothers. She must now figure out how she can pursue her dream of being a detective while keeping her family intact.
Williams and Baker star as Abby’s parents, Don and Sheila. Rounding out the cast as her brothers are Brandon Quinn (Entourage) as Richie, Steve Byers (Smallville) as Steve and James Thomas (Covert Affairs) as Donnie. Additionally, Marisa Ramirez (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena) stars as Abby’s partner Lina Flores, Daniel Kash (The Dresden Files) is her boss Lieutenant Papadol, Andrew Walker (Maybe It’s Me) plays Richie’s partner Brody, Mayko Nguyen (Lifetime’s Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy) is Abby’s neighbor Mackie Phan and Chris Johnson (The Vampire Diaries) appears as Danny Mitchell, a lawyer and old friend of Abby’s.
The series was created and is being written by Saving Grace‘s Annie Brunner with Nancy Miller (also from Saving Grace) serving as executive producer.
The network has ordered 13 hour-long episodes of the drama with a premiere scheduled for Sunday, July 30 at 10 p.m.
