Daniella Pineda may soon have a permanent gig on The Peacock Network.
The Latina comedian/actress has landed a role on NBC’s drama pilot Midnight Sun, starring Bourne franchise actress Julia Stiles in her first series regular stint.
Based on an Israeli thriller, the project follows the mysterious disappearance of Midnight Sun, a group living on a cult-like commune in Alaska. It centers on Leah Kafka (Stiles), a female FBI cult specialist leading the investigation that uncovers a larger conspiracy.
Pineda, who has appeared on TNT’s Men of a Certain Age and Edward Burns’ film Newlyweds, will play a receptionist at the police station.
