Looks like ABC may have a big star lined up for their new action-drama, MISSING. reports that none other than Ashley Judd herself is nearing a deal to headline the show.

The show was originally set to air over the summer but it looks like it has being given the green light for a fall debut instead. Greg Poirier (National Treasure: Book of Secrets) serves as creator/exec producer and Emmy-winning Dexter director Steve Shill will helm multiple episodes, including the premiere.

Missing tells the story of a former CIA agent (Judd) who travels overseas in search of her MIA son.

Previously, Judd’s only notable roles on TV were a recurring as Swoosie Kurtz’s daughter on Sisters and a two-episode arc as Starfleet officer Robin Lefler on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
