Katherine Heigl ZzzQuil Commercial Star Tapped for New NBC CIA Drama, Hot Actress Makes Announcement Days After Being Called Difficult and 'Not Worth It'


ZzzQuil star Katherine Heigl has a new gig on NBC's upcoming CIA drama. However the announcement comes just two days after it was said that the actress is difficult to work with, demanding, and "not worth it."

According to Us Weekly, Heigl, 34, released a statement via her website expressing her excitement about her return to television.

In the statement she said, "I have been passionate about, and enthralled by, this project from the moment Hank, Rodney and Bob brought it to me over a year ago. The story is not only compelling and intelligent but a look behind the curtain at the CIA we haven't seen before in film or television.

"I am thrilled and honored to have been asked to be a part of developing these stories and this character and bringing it all to life. NBC has been a true partner in their passion and support for the show that we've dreamed of making and I could not be happier about joining forces with them."

She added, "Together, with our brilliant writer Alexi Hawley, I believe we are going to make great television!"

According to the actress' website the show follows "the story of a maverick CIA officer (Heigl) plucked from the field to become the President's Daily Briefer, responsible for targeting America's most critical threats, while navigating the unique lifestyle that comes with such a high-powered job."

However, on Wednesday a source told The Hollywood Reporter that Katherine and her mother Nancy Heigl were a nightmare to deal with.

A source said, "I have never experienced anything like Nancy Heigl."

The insider revealed, "It's about the mouth. 'F--- you. You are a f---ing liar.' Whatever you'd say, you were an idiot. The call would be, 'This is the worst craft service we've ever had! There's nothing to eat! This is the worst wardrobe!' You knew that every day, you were going to get slammed."

The source continued, "The frustrating part is [Heigl] is incredibly talented and smart."
