Criminal Minds alumna Paget Brewster is set to star opposite Michael Imperioli in Saint Francis, Chris Moynihan’s multi-camera comedy pilot for ABC. The project, from ABC Studios and Tagline, centers on Francis Quinlan (Imperioli), a blue-collar, no-nonsense Long Island cop and family man who butts heads with the modern, liberal world when his 29-year-old sister gets pregnant out of wedlock. Brewster, repped by UTA and Burstein Co., plays his age obsessed wife who dreads her upcoming 40th birthday but she is also the glue of the family and rallies support for her sister in law.
