The beloved zany big-slurpee-cup swirling forensic scientist Abby Sciutto may have left the police procedural ‘NCIS,’ but the actress who played her will be returning to the small screen in early April.

Pauley Perrette is set to star in her own comedy ‘Broke’ on CBS this spring. She will play the part of Jackie, a bartender and struggling single mom of a young son named Milos. As luck, or lack of, would have it, one day her sister Elizabeth comes knocking on her door, along with her riches to rags husband and his loyal assistant/driver/friend, all needing a place live.

She continues with the fact that her character Abby had been all over the place when it came to relationships. Director Vance had a wonderful relationship, but the writers killed off his wife and Gibbs (Mark Harmon) failed at every relationship he’s ever had.
