NCIS Alum Pauley Perrette To Return In CBS Comedy Pilot

Posted by at 6:49 pm on March 6, 2019

Pauley Perrette has been cast as the lead opposite Jaime Camil, better known as Jane the Virgin’s Rogelio, in the new CBS sitcom pilot Broke, which is executive-produced by Camil and Jane the Virgin EP Jennie Snyder Urman.

Broke is about an “outrageously wealthy trust fund baby,” played by Camil, who is cut off by his father, so he and his wife move into her estranged sister’s condo. Perrette stars as the sister, Jackie, “a tough and sharp-witted loving single mother who is struggling to raise her 9 year-old son.”

Jackie manages a bar and is described as “feisty, not easily cowed, sometimes hot-headed, the kind of woman who knows her way around a tool box and an acetylene torch.” She’s not so thrilled when her snobby rich sister and husband suddenly show up on her doorstep, but she comes to remember how much she loves her sister.

Perrette made the decision to leave NCIS last year, and said goodbye at the end of season 15 much to the dismay of many of the show’s fans.

“I believe in God and the universe so firmly, and it just suddenly became blindingly apparent that now was the time,” she told TV Guide Magazine in an interview at the time. “After a lot of thought, I decided to announce it myself on Twitter because I didn’t want it to be turned into anything “shocking.” Abby leaving is more than a cheap TV ploy.”

The character ended up leaving of her own accord after surviving a hit on her life and deciding to open a charity.
