After a three season-long run as Detective Jackie Curatola on Blue Bloods, actress Jennifer Esposito abruptly exited the cop drama in 2012. But now, she’s set to debut in a new hit show.

According to Deadline, fans can expect to see her in Shonda Rhimes’ upcoming Netflix limited series Inventing Anna. Jennifer will play Talia Mallay, “the famous owner of a lavish lifestyle brand who excels at the social game."

The 10-episode drama is based on Jessica Pressler’s story “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People," and will also star Anna Chlumsky as a journalist and Julia Garner as Anna Delvey, an intriguing German heiress and con-artist.

Since The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Jennifer collapsed on the set of Blue Bloods due to complications from Celiac disease nearly a decade ago, the actress wrote Jennifer's Way: My Journey with Celiac Disease—What Doctors Don't Tell You and How You Can Learn to Live Again to help raise awareness for people suffering from the condition and to assist others in understanding the disease.

This came after the Blue Bloods season three episode “Nightmares,” in which Jennifer's character (Donnie Whalberg's partner) decided to take an extended leave of absence from law enforcement. Jennifer returned to CBS in 2016 where she starred as special agent Alexandra “Alex” Quinn on NCIS for 24 episodes. Her other recent credits include roles on Mistresses, The Affair, Blindspot, and The Boys.
