TVLine.com confirms through an ABC spokesperson that Alicia Coppola has been cast as Detective Louis Fitch’s (Michael Imperioli) estranged ex-wife on DETROIT 1-8-7. Coppola will play the character Linda Gerraty, which will become a recurring role if the show is renewed for a second season. There is no confirmation as to how many episodes Coppola will appear in.
Known for the role of Mimi Clark on the CBS drama Jericho, Coppola is currently working with her former Jericho producer Jon Turteltaub on Common Law, USA’s buddy cop dramedy pilot. If the show is given the green light, Coppola will recur as a pathologist who has a history with Common Law‘s leading man, Michael Ealy (The Good Wife).
