Sarah-Chalke-sarah-chalke-1570868-1024-768Sitcom star Sarah Chalke will be taking a career detour in the fall with a major recurring role on Fox’s midseason crime drama Backstrom.

Chalke will play Amy Gazanian, ex-fiancée of Rainn Wilson’s character.  A former social worker and journalist, Amy left Wilson’s Backstrom 10 years ago, due to the trauma-riddled man’s many flaws.  Now back in town, she has been appointed the Chair of the Civilian Oversight Committee – and despite her lingering affection for Backstrom, intends to do her job, keeping an eye on his every ethically dubious, judicially inappropriate move.

Chalke’s last major TV role was on ABC’s shortlived comedy How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life).
