America Ferrera is set to become a nun. Well, at least she'll be playing one.

A new CBS drama, Damascus, will star Ferrera as a crusading nun who practices law to help the less fortunate, Deadline reports. When she teams up with a corporate lawyer, the two become the target of a secret and powerful organization set to destroy them. 

Ferrera is not only set to star, but she'll also be executive producing alongside Ugly Betty executive producer Teri Weinberg
