Scrubs' Sarah Chalke has joined Rainn Wilson in Fox's midseason drama Backstrom, TVLine reports.
Chalke will play Amy Gazanian, the ex-fiance of Wilson's titular detective. Though she left him 10 years ago, Amy continues to have lingering feelings for the trauma-riddled Backstrom. But now that she's been appointed the Chair of the Civilian Oversight Committee, Amy will have to put her feeligns aside and make an eye of Backstrom's ethically questionable behavior.
