Deadline is reporting that John Stamos (Full House) has joined the cast of upcoming ABC soap Members Only. He’s set to portray Randy, a hedge-fund billionaire who gains access to a private country club thanks to his marriage to Mickey (Natalie Zea).
Created by Susannah Grant (A Gifted Man) and Oscar winner David O. Russell, though the latter exited the project a month after its series order, Members Only follows the goings-on at an exclusive country club in Connecticut. Said to be an upstairs/downstairs drama that focuses on the dynamic between the wealthy members and working class employees, the series was one of multiple straight-to-series orders given by ABC this season, joining the likes of period drama The Astronaut Wives Club and crime drama Secrets & Lies.
In addition to Stamos and Zea, Members Only stars Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), Boris Kodjoe (Real Husbands of Hollywood), Luke Mitchell (The Tomorrow People), Michael Landes (Save Me), and Chris Conroy (Sorority Row). Aside from his stint on Full House, which reportedly has a reboot in the works, Stamos has appeared on the likes of Necessary Roughness, The New Normal, and Glee, with a guest appearance on musical comedy Galavant to come next year.
Members Only is expected to premiere sometime midseason on ABC.
