Appearing as CIA analyst Charleston "Charlie" Tucker, Heigl's new character is far from the saccharine sweet Izzie Stevens fans grew to love on Grey's. In addition to her demanding day-to-day schedule as advisor to President Constance Peyton (Alfre Woodard), Tucker is on a never-ending quest to track down the terrorists responsible for murdering her fiance, who happens to also be the President's son.

Watch a sneak peek of the new drama above and tune in each Monday at 10 p.m. (EST) on NBC.
