Katherine Heigl is gearing up for her small screen return. On Monday she attended NBC Upfronts promoting her new drama "State of Affairs."

The event is held for advertisers to buy air time, and the former "Grey's Anatomy" actress was hamming it up on the red carpet. Heigl rocked a wool pink frock complimented by a brown leather jacket and black boots. Her hair was swept to one side with curls, and her face was accented by rose lipstick.

The "Knocked Up" star plays CIA analyst Charleston Tucker in "State of Affairs." The Daily Mail says her character prioritizes international crises facing America.
