Dawn Stern will play the lead role in the ABC Family drama pilot, Nobody.

From Desperate Housewives writer Kevin Murphy, the show is based on the comic book created by Alex Amado, Sharon Cho and Charlie Adlard. It centers on Jessica Drake (Stern), a mother who gives up her own identity to save the life of her daughter. The Hollywood Reporter adds in doing so, however, she finds that she must pay the price of being erased from the memories of her family and the rest of the world. Jessica ends up working for a covert ops branch of heaven dedicated to fighting the forces of darkness on Earth - while continuing to make sure her family is safe.

Nobody starts shooting this month in Vancouver.
