Los Angeles, Sep 27 (PTI) 'House' alumna Lisa Edelstein is heading to '9-1-1: Lone Star', the popular Fox series.
The actor has joined the firefighter drama show for a recurring role opposite her 'West Wing' co-star Rob Lowe in the upcoming second season, reported Deadline.
'9-1-1: Lone Star' follows a sophisticated New York firefighter, Owen (Lowe) who, along with his son, TK (Ronen Rubinstein), relocates to Austin and must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable while solving the problems in his own life.
Edelstein will play Gwyneth, a lawyer and Owen's former wife, who is a firefighter in the house Owen is captain of. Gwyneth visits Austin from New York City to be with their son TK after he was shot and hospitalised at the end of last season.
