The Catch” has found its new Zoe in actress Sonya Walger. Variety has learned the “Lost” alum has landed the part, replacing Bethany Joy Lenz who was originally cast in the pilot.

The re-casting comes after the lead male role of Kieran Booth was re-set on Shonda RhimesABC drama with Peter Krause (“Parenthood”) in for Damon Dayoub, who was also set for the pilot.

Zoe (Walger) is Kieran’s (Krause) wife and partner in crime who loves her husband and loves their life, amoral though it may be, and she’s going to hang on tight as she senses him slipping away from her.

Walger and Krause join “The Catch’s” leading lady Mireille Enos (“The Killing”) who stars as Alice, a successful fraud investigator. The thriller revolves around Alice, who’s about to be the victim of fraud herself by her fiancé. Between her cases, she is determined to find him before it ruins her career.

Walger is no stranger to Shondaland, as she guest-starred in two “Scandal” episodes this past season. The project also reunites her with Krause, as she recurred on “Parenthood’s” fifth season. Her other TV credits include “Power,” “Common Law” and “Flashforward.”

“The Catch,” set for midseason, was written by Jennifer Schuur and hails from Rhimes and Betsy Beers. All three serve as exec producers with Julie Anne Robinson on the ABC Studios production.

The series marks the fourth Shondaland drama on ABC’s current slate, joining “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder.”
