Potter has starred in the films "Along Came a Spider," "Patch Adams" and "Con Air" and was a regular on the ABC series "Boston Legal."

Potter will play Sarah Krajicek-Hunter, a recently divorced, award-winning copywriter who is a new addition at the agency, the trade paper said.
The project is to begin shooting this month.
