Cote de Pablo’s departure last July, as one of the longest-running players in NCIS, still has audiences wondering why after eight seasons, she was written out of the popular series. A favorite among CBS audiences, they will be glad to know that de Pablo returns to the network in the 2015 miniseries The Dovekeepers which is executive produced by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett (The Bible, Survivor).
The four-hour miniseries is based on Alice Hoffman’s historical novel The Dovekeepers and centers on four women’s fight for survival at the siege of Masada. The Dovekeepers is based on real life events of when the Jews were forced out of Jerusalem into the fortress of Masada. De Pablo will play the role of Shirah, a single mother with mystical powers, which lead to her being called the “Witch of Moab”.
The miniseries is a co-production between CBS Television Studios and LightWorker Media. Executive produced by Downey and Burnett along with Frank Siracusa, John Weber and Yves Simoneau (who also directs) from an adaptation by Ann Peacock.
De Pablo is repped by Paradigm and Management 360.
