Former “CSI” star Marg Helgenberger is heading back to CBS after landing a new series at the network.

Helgenberger will co-star in the pilot “Intelligence,” according to Deadline, joining the previously announced Josh Holloway (“Lost“) in the project.

The series will center around a U.S. Cyber Command unit that has been created around one agent (Holloway) with a very special gift — a microchip has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum.

Helgenberger will play Lillian, the director of Cybercom.

“Intelligence” is based on the unpublished book “Dissident” by John Dixon and the pilot script comes from Michael Seitzman (“North Country”), with David Semel (“No Ordinary Family”) set to direct.

Helgenberger left “CSI” last year after playing Catherine Willows for 12 seasons.
