Bethany Joy Lenz‘s passion for music and acting is intersecting again.

She’ll play Lauren Byrd, a genius songwriter who employs a small staff, including her sister, to enable and manage her eccentric, yet wildly successful process. But when her ex-fiancée reveals himself to be less than the man she remembers, she comes to the realization that she can no longer live in the past, and must find a new, true inspiration for her sake and those around her.

Lenz, who is coming off an arc on Dexter, will next be seen in CSI‘s 300th episode, airing Oct. 23.
