The project centers on the Hamiltons, consisting of parents (Anthony LaPaglia and Felicity Huffman) and grownup sons (Michael Stahl-David and Patrick Heusinger), who serve as assassins for the federal government.

Salazar will portray Olive, the ex-girlfriend who Sam (Stahl-David) has never forgotten.

The casting stems from the talent deal Salazar signed with Fox following her co-starring role on the network’s comedy pilot Little Brother last year.

She recently guest starred on Fox’s Ben & Kate. Her other credits include NBC’s Parenthood and FX’s American Horror Story.
