Cote de Pablo Dovekeepers CBS - The actress returns to CBS for The Dovekeepers that will debut Cote de Pablo in a new role. The network announced a two night event that will air on March 31st and April 1st respectively. This comes after the network kept the premiere date for The Dovekeepers a secret, according to The Inquisitr.
“I have been blessed,” she told writers at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Monday.
The series is based on Alicia Hoffman’s historical novel which documents the Siege of Masada. It is set in Ancient Israel and follows four women who come together in a fight for survival. The story is based on true life events, when in 70 AD, 900 Jews were forced out of Jerusalem by the Romans.
“I was so profoundly touched by a story of persecuted people … who stood up for what they believed in, where courage and love were greater than fear and faith and love greater than hate,” she said.
Cote de Pablo will star in The Dovekeepers on CBS alongside House of Card’s actress Rachel Brosnahan and Kathryn Prescott, and they will form the Dovekeepers role themselves, according to YAHOO. While there’s even more familar faces set to star with Diego Boneta, who previously starred in Pretty Little Liars as Alex will also appear.
Some fans are still itching to see Cote re-appear on NCIS and when her role in The Dovekeepers was announced this summer. Gary Glasberg said he was “thrilled” for the actress in her new role. He also pointed out in that very interview that there was absolutely no bad blood between the show and Cote.
A small promo was released previously, showing The Dovekeepers girls on set in Malta introducing themselves. Including the actress, who appears on screen in the video, which proudly announces her return to CBS.
As Cote de Pablo makes her return to The Dovekeepers on CBS, the story itself is still interesting. Cote will be in a story that is based on Alice Hoffman’s best-selling 2011 historical novel, notes WebProNews. It is based on events surrounding the siege of Masada roughly 2,000 years ago.
