Revolution’s Daniella Alonso is returning to NBC with her new regular role in the upcoming drama Night Shift.
Alonso’s previous role on Revolution ended when her character was killed off on the show’s last season. She has recently signed onto the freshman season of the network’s new show Night Shift, explains the Hollywood Reporter.
Night Shift is described as an ensemble medical show following Army doctors working the late shift at a San Antonio Hospital. Alonso will play psychiatrist Dr. Landry Miller, a sexy, cool, fun-loving and tough Texas native. As the hospital’s only psychiatrist on the weekend night shift in the busy emergency department, she sees it all. The only thing crazier than her cases is the family in which she grew up. She does a good job of covering up the mess that lies inside, but this makes her a natural fit with her night-shift colleagues.
The drama has yet to have an exact premiere date for NBC. In addition to Alonso, Brigid Brannagh, Eoin Macken, Freddy Rodriguez, Jeananne Goossen, Jill Flint, Ken Leung, Robert Bailey Jr., Brendan Fehr and JR Lemon star in the show. Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah penned the Sony Pictures Television pilot and will executive produce alongside Pierre Morel, who directed the pilot.
Alonso, whose credits also include My Generation and Friday Night Lights as well as feature “The Hills Have Eyes”, is repped by Gersh and Luber Roklin.
