Rising star Gina Rodriguez has landed the title role in The CW drama pilot, “Jane the Virgin,” TVLine reports.

The series, written by Jennie Snyder Urman, follows Rodriguez as a “hard working, religious young Latina who is accidentally artificially inseminated.” The potential series is adapted from a Venezuelan telenovela with hopes that it will be just as successful.

Rodriguez credits include guest roles on TV series such as “Rizzoli & Isles,” “The Mentalist,” and “Longmire” alongside Lou Diamond Phillips.
