Private Practice‘s KaDee Strickland is trading in her scalpel for a samurai sword.
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).Follow @kimroots
