Khandi Alexander is returning to CBS with a co-starring role opposite Alan Cumming and Bojana Novakovic in the drama pilot “Instinct,” reports Deadline.

Based on the upcoming book by James Patterson and directed by Marc Webb, “Instinct” centers on Dylan (Cumming), a former CIA operative who has since built a “normal” life as a gifted professor and writer but is pulled back into his old life when the NYPD needs his help to stop a serial killer on the loose.

Alexander will play Lizzi’s (Novakovic) police superior. Naveen Andrews and Daniel Ings also co-star.

In addition to her seven-seasons on CBS’ “CSI: Miami,” Alexander co-starred on HBO’s “Treme” and recurred as Olivia Pope’s scheming mother Maya on ABC’s “Scandal,” a role that earned her an Emmy nomination.

She recently co-starred opposite Mark Wahlberg in “Patriot’s Day” for Lionsgate.
