The former 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' star will back up the titular superhero with her findings about corruption.

Having ticked "Firefly", "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" and "Dollhouse" on her list, Summer Glau sets her eyes on a new series. The 28-year-old actress has nabbed a leading role on the pilot of NBC's "The Cape" which is directed by Simon West.

The pilot stars David Lyons as a former cop who has a double identity to clear his name. Lyons' character is framed and set up as a criminal thus he becomes a masked superhero, the Cape, to restore his reputation.

Glau meanwhile is playing a cute and intrepid investigative blogger named Orwell who bravely exposes corruption and costumed bad guys, THR reported. The character is also capable of getting physical and "kicking ass".

Beside Lyons and Glau, James Frain from "The Tudors" has also been cast as a villain. Tom Wheeler, the scribe behind "Empire" is tackling the job as a screenwriter to the pilot.
