Sally Field Signs on for New TV Series

Sally Field is signing on for a weekly TV series.

Field has joined the cast of "Brothers & Sisters," a drama set to air this fall, ABC announced Tuesday.

"Brothers & Sisters" follows a close-knit family socially and financially intertwined by love, business — and secrets. Field will play the mother of five adult siblings, the network said.

The series also stars Calista Flockhart, Rachel Griffiths, Ron Rifkin, Balthazar Getty and Patricia Wettig.

Field, 59, won Oscars for her roles in 1984's "Places in the Heart" and 1979's "Norma Rae." She's won two Emmys — for "Sybil" in 1977 and for a guest role on NBC's "ER" in 2001.

She played a Supreme Court justice on the TV drama "The Court" in 2002.
