Adapted from a BBC One series by Gossip Girl‘s KJ Steinberg and exec-produced by Revenge‘s Bob Sertner, Mistresses is described as a provocative drama that centers on four women balancing scandalous, complex love lives.
Kim will fill one of the lead roles — Karen, a psychiatrist who in the pilot is reeling from the death of a male patient with whom she was, um, particularly close.
Previously cast on Mistresses were Rochelle Aytes (The Forgotten) as April, a recent widow raising two daughters, and newcomer Jes Macallan as Josslyn, a real estate broker and unapologetically sensual woman.
The fourth female lead, Savannah (aka Savi), remains to be cast.
Also newly added to the series is onetime Vampire Diaries werewolf Erik Stocklin, playing the grown son of Karen’s recently deceased patient.
