Tolman, who is best known for starring as Deputy Molly Solverson on FX's Fargo, will be portraying a police officer once again on Emergence. The officer takes in a young child that she finds near the site of a mysterious accident.

Tolman, who received Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her role on Fargo, has also appeared in television series such as Downward Dog, The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Good Girls, Castle Rock, Me, Myself and I and Mosaic.
The actress is also set to star in an episode of CBS All Access' upcoming reboot of The Twilight Zone. The classic sci-fi and horror anthology series will return on April 1.
