After starring in seven seasons of The Closer, Kyra Sedgwick will trade her badge for a wimple — then her wimple for a shot at an ordinary life.
The Emmy-winning actress will star as an ex-nun in an untitled single-cam comedy from Kari Lizer (The New Adventures of Old Christine). Sedgwick and Lizer will co-executive produce.
Sedgwick’s character embraces life outside the cloisters after becoming disillusioned by the institution she’s embraced since her teen years: “No longer ‘Sister Katherine,’ she’s turned her back on her old life and now finds herself coming of age, trying to figure out who she is without her vows and what it means to be an ordinary woman. A person who believes in believing, she’ll try to figure out what or whom she’ll put her faith in now.”
