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."
Her latest project is set in a high-profile, fiercely competitive advertising agency.
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.
