Lifetime’s “Army Wives” is rebooting with a Golden Globe nominee.
Brooke Shields (“Suddenly Susan,” “The Blue Lagoon”) will recur on the drama as an aggressive and genius Air Force colonel and C-17 pilot named Katherine Young.
She will clash with Army General Michael Holden (played by Brian McNamara), as they both advocate for their respective branches. Eventually, Holden learns of Kat’s past and that they actually have a lot in common.
The series about women (and a man) living on an active Army post and the struggles and friendships that develop is being revamped in the new season.
Singer- actor Jesse McCartney (“Greek”) will have an 11- episode recurring arc. Elle McLemore, Ashanti and Torrey DeVitto will also become series regulars. Original cast member Kim Delaney is leaving, while regulars Sally Pressman and Sterling K. Brown and downgrading to recurring actors.
Shields most recently was on “Lipstick Jungle,” which ran from 2008- 2009. She has also had arcs on “That ’70s Show,” “Hannah Montana,” “Nip/ Tuck” and recently “The Middle.”
UTA and Untitled Entertainment represent Shields.
Mark Gordon and Jeff Melvoin are the series’ executive producers.
“Army Wives” season seven premieres March 10 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
