Amber Tamblyn and America Ferrara The star of CBS's drama Joan of Arcadia is coming back to television.
Amber Tamblyn, pictured right with Ugly Betty's America Ferrara, has just signed to star in ABC's pilot The Unusuals. The show, a one-hour dramedy, is set in a Manhattan and will feature Tamblyn as a police officer whose choice of profession has made her the black sheep of her wealthy family. Tamblyn will play Casey Shraeger, a newly transferred homicide detective who learns that her fellow officers have quirks and secrets.

TV Squad reported last week that Lost's Harold Perrineau will be joining The Unusuals as well. The former castaway plays a detective who never takes off his bullet proof vest because he's terrified of being shot. Perrineau and Tamblyn are joined by Monique Curnen whose credits include The Dark Knight and Adam Goldberg from HBO's Entourage.

You can see Amber Tamblyn in theatres soon; she's back for a second installment of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

I like the show concept...but it is all a little too Dirty Sexy Money if you ask me....lots of that going around on ABC these days...it's even a similar plot to Eli Stone - was once great well paid etc, then "went nuts" and started working pro bono.

It's cool though. I don't mind it all that much. Kinda reminds me of St. Francis of Assisi, among other saints as well.

I'm up in the air about this. It might be good, but the quirkiness might not appeal to others -
