Deadline is reporting that Natalie Zea (Justified) has joined the cast of upcoming ABC primetime soap Members Only. She’s set to portray Mickey, a beautiful, educated member of the founding family of a private country club.
Created by Susannah Grant (A Gifted Man) and David O. Russell (American Hustle), with the latter dropping out before the series could get into production, Members Only follows the goings-on at the country club Mickey’s family owns, with the series being described as having an upstairs/downstairs dynamic between its clientele and staff.
In addition to her role on the FX crime drama, Zea has appeared on the likes of The Following, Under the Dome, and Dirty Sexy Money. She joins a cast that includes the likes of Betsy Brandt (Masters of Sex), Luke Mitchell (The Tomorrow People), Boris Kodjoe (Real Husbands of Hollywood), Michael Landes (Save Me), and Chris Conroy (Sorority Row).
Members Only is set to premiere sometime this midseason on ABC. No trailer or promotional material has been released as of yet.
Will you be watching Members Only? Where do you think ABC should ultimately schedule the show? Do you think Members Only would be better served by airing in the summer rather than going up against heightened in-season?
