cote-de-pablo-the-dovekeepers-cbs.jpgTwo years after Cote de Pablo left her megahit CBS series, "NCIS," she'll return to the network to star in a new miniseries called "The Dovekeepers."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, de Pablo will star in the four-hour event, based on the Alice Hoffman historical novel of the same name that follows "four women as their lives intersect in a fight for survival at the siege of Masada in ancient Israel."

De Pablo will play Shirah, a "sensual, mysterious and fiercely independent single mother" who's known to some as the Witch of Moab due to her secret practice of ancient magic.

"The Dovekeepers" is produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, and will premiere on CBS in 2015.
