Buffy Alum Eliza Dushku Starring in a New Pilot

Eliza Dushku likes a good mystery.

According to Deadline she will be getting one soon as our second favorite vampire slayer is headed back to the small screen in the new TNT pilot, Bird Dog.

This time, the mystery is a bit less supernatural and she will be starring as a police officer in a small town in the Pacific northwest. Bird Dog will focus on the sometimes strained relationship between Dushku’s character (Gail McGrath) and her father when they become partners on the police force. Mike Robe wrote and directed the pilot.

The actress also tweeted her excitement earlier:

YES, I’m gearing up to start shooting a new pilot that I love: called “BIRD DOG” w/ TNT! Stay tuned…! XO

Boston gal Dushku is most well known for her role as the fiery vampire slayer Faith on Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She also played the lead role in Whedon’s short lived but fan-loved series, Dollhouse, and the title role in FOX’s Tru Calling. Most recently, Dushku was seen as FBI Special Agent Angela Page on CBS’ popular comedy, The Big Bang Theory. We posted some promos of her episode here.

What do you guys think about this news? Are you excited to see her potentially head back to TV? Who else should be cast in the show? Let us know in the comments below.
