Ronda Rousey books recurring role on FOX's '9-1-1'


Ronda Rousey has booked her next acting role.

Deadline reported today that Rousey will have a recurring role in season three of FOX's "9-1-1." The show is a scripted drama series about first responders in Los Angeles.

Deadline noted that Rousey "will play Lena Bosko, a stoic and fearless member of the Los Angeles Fire Department Station 136 who leaps into action to save lives when a disaster hits."

Season three of "9-1-1" involves a tsunami hitting Santa Monica. Entertainment Weekly wrote that "Rousey’s team is lost during the disaster, so her character joins Ryan Guzman’s Eddie and the rest of Station 118 to help save some lives."

The first episode of the new season of "9-1-1" premieres on FOX at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, September 23. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear are the creators of the show.

Rousey has been on hiatus from WWE since WrestleMania 35, where Becky Lynch defeated Rousey and Charlotte Flair in the main event. Rousey noted that she and her husband Travis Browne were attempting to start a family.
