Michael Imperioli has joined the cast of NBC pilot County.

The drama, from Friday Night Lights exec Jason Katims, will focus on the medical staff at a troubled LA County hospital.

Imperioli will play Dr Mercer, a veteran doctor tasked with overseeing young interns, according to TVLine.

The actor is best known for playing Christopher Moltisanti on HBO's The Sopranos between 1999 and 2007. He also starred in the short-lived US remake of Life On Mars and ABC cop drama Detroit 1-8-7.

His latest project, Entourage creator Doug Ellin's pilot 40, was recently passed over by HBO.

Jason Ritter (The Event), Michael B Jordan (Friday Night Lights), Aimee Garcia (Dexter), Jess Weixler (Teeth) and Agam Darshi (Sanctuary) will also star in County.
