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).

    Awesome! I’m really impressed that she went for a pilot right after wrapping PP, but I’m ok with it!

  4. Linderella says:

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

  5. Ella says:

    I’m late on the PP bandwagon, but believe it or not I love her character…..not sure how I feel about this though

  6. Ella B. says:

    Wait… the orphan has to defeat her mother? That… I’m not sure I follow…

  7. GS says:

    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.

  8. Lauren says:

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

    Good luck to KaDee! =)
