Detroit 1-8-7 Exclusive: Jericho Alum Cast as Fitch's Ex-Wife
By: Megan Masters
Fitch’s ex is finally dropping by Detroit 1-8-7, and the lovely lady will be played by Alicia Coppola!
An ABC spokesperson confirms to TVLine that Coppola, who you’ll most likely remember as Jericho‘s Mimi Clark, has been cast as Linda Gerraty, the much-talked about but never seen former wife of Michael Imperioli’s Fitch.
No word on how many episodes Coppola will appear in, but should Detroit be granted a second season, the actress will recur on the drama series.
Coppola is currently working on Common Law, a new pilot by her former Jericho producer Jon Turteltaub. If the pilot is picked up, she will recur as a pathologist who has a history with Law‘s leading man, Michael Ealy (The Good Wife).
But wait, there’s even more Coppola to come, when she guests on this Monday’s episode of Castle.
Detroit 1-8-7 airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on ABC.
