Linda Cardellini is the latest in-demand thespian joining the Netflix revolution.
The Emmy-nominated Mad Men actress has been cast in the streaming behemoth’s latest original series, an untitled thriller from Damages creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler, as a regular, TVLine has learned.
The psychological drama centers on a family of adult siblings whose secrets and scars are revealed when the black sheep oldest brother returns home.
Cardellini (next seen playing Zooey Deschanel’s onscreen sis on New Girl) will play Meg, the youngest of four siblings, a skilled attorney who’s also warm, caring and fun. Meg’s a people-pleaser who uses her smile and charm to navigate all aspects of her life – including her men, her profession and her family. Beneath her buoyant exterior, she is a complex woman with secrets.
Friday Night Lights vet Kyle Chandler was recently cast as the the married middle brother who takes care of the family.
