Exclusive: USA Network Series Is Better Off With Andrea Anders
The super-sunny and often funny actress can next be seen in multiple episodes of Necessary Roughness, one of USA Network’s new summer dramedies, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Premiering Wednesday, June 29, at 10/9c, Necessary Roughness stars Callie Thorne (Rescue Me) as Dr. Dani Santino, a down-on-her-luck psychotherapist who, through a whirlwind chain of events, finds herself serving as the “shrink to the stars.” The cast features Mehcad Brooks (True Blood) as Terrence King, a football all-star and Dani’s first high-profile patient; Marc Blucas (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Matt, the team’s trainer; and Scott Cohen (Gilmore Girls) as a sports “fixer.”
Anders will play Laura, a PR exec that King’s team hires to rehab his image. The pretty spin-mistress also has a “history” with Matt, so expect her to get pulled into a bit a love triangle with him and Dani.
Anders will appear in at least three episodes, beginning July 27, with the potential to go recurring.
