Fall TV Exclusive: CBS' Made in Jersey Casts 90210’s Megalyn Echikunwoke

The desks at Made in Jersey‘s Stark & Rowan law firm continue to fill.

Megalyn Echikunwoke, who played 90210 sorority president Holly, will be a series regular on the CBS legal drama, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.

The actress is the second regular the show has cast in the past month; she follows Ringer actor Kristoffer Polaha, who will play Nolan, a spoiled-yet-charming third-year associate at the firm.

Made in Jersey is the story of how working-class Jersey girl Martina Garretti (Human Target’s Janet Montgomery) shows her stuffy New York law-firm colleagues a thing or two. The drama also stars Kyle MacLachlan (Desperate Housewives) and Donna Murphy (Hack).

Echikunwoke’s character, Riley, is the daughter of an ambassador and a Silicon Valley pioneer — giving her a sophisticated, worldly flair that makes her an asset to any case involving international clients. The striking second-year associate at Stark & Rowan will be a natural foil for Martina, whose worldview (and travel experience) is rather limited in comparison.

Echikunwoke’s other TV credits include 24, That ’70s Show, The 4400 and CSI: Miami. She most recently appeared as April on Showtime’s House of Lies.

Jersey will debut Friday, Sept. 28 at 9/8c, between CSI: NY and Blue Bloods.

    Didn’t really like her character on 90210, but I thought she was a good actress. Something I can’t say about everyone on that show…

      agreed i liked her on the 4400 as well.

    • Captain says:

      I’ve never had a problem with her as an actress but I definitely didn’t like her on 90210. She seems to be fairly type-cast in the bad girl roles. She wasn’t exactly a villain on House of Lies but she wasn’t nice either.
