Valerie Cruz is scrubbing in for duty…
The Cuban American actress has been cast as a series regular in The Resident, Fox’s medical drama pilot written by Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi.
Directed by Phillip Noyce and produced by Antoine Fuqua, The Resident centers on Devon Pravesh (Manish Dayal), an idealistic young doctor who begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant and cocky senior resident, Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry), who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern day medicine. Lives may be saved or lost, but expectations will always be shattered.
Cruz will play hospital CEO Renata Lopez.
Cruz will next be seen on the big screen in the upcoming feature Locating Silver Lake with Finn Wittrock.
