24: LEGACY (FOX/20th; W: Evan Katz & Manny Coto; D: Stephen Hopkins) - Sheila Vand ("State of Affairs") has joined the cast of the drama pilot, which will revolve around military hero Eric Carter's (Corey Hawkins) return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back - compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil. She'll play Nilaa, "the campaign director of Sen. Donovan (Jimmy Smits) who is driven and bright and won't take a back seat to the judgment of Donovan's wife, Rebecca (Miranda Otto)."

She'll play Alicia Carr, "the affluent mother of the teen involved in a police shooting. Angry, distraught and devastated by the death of her son at the hands of a police officer, she doesn't care about the politics of the investigation, she just wants her son's murderer brought to justice." (Deadline.com)
