Tracie Thoms, who was on Broadway earlier this season in Stick Fly, will be seen in the CBS pilot "Applebaum."
Thoms, according to her manager, will play the role of Kat.
In "Applebaum," which is written by Ayelet Waldman, Thoms plays "a former doctor, a loving mother and the loyal, supportive best friend of the lead character, Juliet," played by Rachel Lefevre.
Thoms was a series regular on "Cold Case," starred in the "Rent" movie and Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof," and played Anne Hathaway's buddy in "The Devil Wears Prada." Her Broadway credits include Rent, The Drowning Crow and Stick Fly.
