The 'Happy Endings' alum will guest-star in the pilot episode as a cable news correspondent.
TNT's drama Civil is adding another familiar face.
Eliza Coupe is set to guest star in the pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Civil takes place in the wake of a hotly contested Presidential election, as America finds itself plunging uncontrollably into a modern-day Civil War. The series weaves together the personal stories of citizens from all walks of life, whose actions — amplified in an age of instant media — add fuel to the conflict and affect the fate of the entire country.
Coupe will play Kelly Brookmyre, a cable news correspondent attached to the Republican Presidential campaign. Her ambition — and her willingness to bend a few rules — ends up nudging her across the line from covering news to making it, with a profound effect on the course of the nation.
