In her first TV gig since her memorable season-long arc on “House,” Amber Tamblyn, pictured, has signed on as the female lead opposite Skeet Ulrich in the CBS drama pilot “Anatomy Of Violence,” written and executive produced by “Homeland‘s” Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Alex Cary and directed by Mark Pellington, reports Deadline.

Inspired by the nonfiction book by Adrian Raine, the 20th TV-produced drama centers on Raines (Ulrich), a maverick FBI Criminal Psychiatrist with an expertise in sociopaths who partners with Abby (Tamblyn), a young female FBI Agent with whom he shares a conflicted past. Abby joined the Bureau after watching her sister get traumatized at the hands of a gunman thirteen years ago.

Tamblyn hit the genre scene with The Ring remake, as well as The Grudge 2. Pellington directed the astounding Arlington Road.

    Am I the only one here who laughed at the sentence Skeet Ulrich combined with maverick FBI investigator!! Almost as funny as Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist in Bond. I do love Tamblyn though, but this really sounds like it should be on the CW.

      Nope, you’re not the only one!

      I really like Tamblyn, I think I’m the only person that likes the ‘Grudge’ movies (yes, the sequels too) and she was great in part 2.
