Constance Wu to return to TV in new drama

Actress Constance Wu will be returning to television in a new Amazon drama, The Terminal List, reports TV Line.

Wu will star alongside Chris Pratt and Taylor Kitsch, based on a best selling book by Jack Carr.

This marks Wu’s first return to television since the end of the six year run of Fresh Off the Boat on ABC last year.

It also comes after she quietly gave birth to a baby girl in the summer. Word of the new arrival didn’t surface until late December. The father is her boyfriend, musician Ryan Kattner. 

According to Variety,  Wu will portray Katie Buranek, a daring war correspondent seeking to report high impact stories on her own terms. Baranek finds an ally in James Reese as portrayed by Pratt. Reese is a navy seal whose platoon is ambushed during a mission and who returns home blaming himself for what happened. Buranek works to bring what really happened to Reese to light.

Wu is coming off the hit movies Hustlers with Jennifer with Jennifer Lopez and Crazy Rich Asians with Henry Golding. Her reputation took a hit when Wu expressed disappointment on Twitter after ABC renewed Fresh Off the Boat for a sixth season, meaning she wouldn’t be able to pursue another project she had coveted. Fans felt her reaction didn’t take into account the lives of her co-stars on the program.
