Bloodline follows an orphaned girl named Bird Benson (The Nine Lives of Chloe King‘s Skyler Samuels) who’s caught between two families of murderers and mercenaries. In order to eventually have a normal life, Bird learns, she must defeat her mother — Strickland’s character — via mortal combat.

Strickland’s Stella is described as the strikingly beautiful daughter of a family of killers and brigands headed by Jonathan Banks’ Leo – a role similar to that of The Bride in Kill Bill.

Strickland played sharp-tongued Charlotte King for six seasons of Private Practice, which recently wrapped production.

Bloodline is written by David Graziano (Felicity) and directed by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights).

  • Disappointing plot. As much as I like KaDee, I’ll be skipping this one. :(

  • She is too good for something that sounds so suckish! I don’t watch one show on NBC and even though I love her, this won’t be the one to get me.

  • I wish Charlotte and Cooper would go to Seattle Grace and that two annoying interns would be fired.
