Former Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill troublemaker Amanda Schull has joined the cast of USA Network’s untitled hour-long pilot from Numbers creators Nicolas Falacci and Cheryl Heuton, TVLine has confirmed.
The project, based on a short story from Elmore Leonard‘s anthology When The Women Come Out To Dance, centers on a Miami businessman (How to Make It In America‘s Bryan Greenberg) who, contemplating a run for political office, tries to increase his chances of being elected by marrying a Colombian woman (newcomer Stephanie Sigman). What starts as a marriage of convenience quickly escalates into much more as his new wife proves to be more resourceful at “fixing” any problem the corrupt South Miami political scene throws at her hubby.
Schull, who recently booked a recurring gig on USA’s Suits, will play Melody Pruitt-Morales, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy former U.S. senator who also used to date Greenberg’s character. Now married to the fast-rising Miami district attorney, she plays the role of socialite-political wife.
