“Nikita” star Maggie Q has joined Kevin Williamson’s still-untitled CBS pilot that centers on detectives who handle stalking incidents for LAPD’s Threat Assessment Unit.

The thesp will play Beth Davis, an opinionated and obsessive workaholic who is captain of that unit. She joins a cast that already includes “Hostages'” Dylan McDermott and “True Blood’s” Mariana Klaveno.

The one-hour psycho thriller drama is produced by writer Williamson through his Outerbanks Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television. Liz Friedlander is directing the pilot.

Q, who is repped by Untitled Entertainment and CAA, can be seen in the upcoming “Divergent” trilogy and this fall’s “Conspiracy on Jekyll Island.” She is also attached to star in the upcoming limited event miniseries “Red Flag” about Chinese pirate Ching Shih.
