Sutton Foster Mad Dogs Cast

Sutton Foster Books Guest Gig on Amazon Dark Comedy Mad Dogs

Younger woman is going to the dogs.

Sutton Foster, who stars in the TV Land dramedy, has booked a guest-starring role on Amazon’s forthcoming Mad Dogs, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The hour-long dark comedy, adapted from the British series of the same name, follows a group of underachieving fortysomething friends who gather in Belize to celebrate an early retirement. When wild events start to unfold, secrets are revealed — and someone dies.

Foster will play Gerda, who is described as “a stubborn and fierce Mennonite wife gone rogue.” She’ll be around for at least one episode.

Mad Dogs stars Billy Zane (Titanic), Steve Zahn (Treme), Romany Malco (Weeds), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) and Ben Chaplin (The Truth About Cats and Dogs). Chaplin also appeared in the British version.

The series’ executive producers include Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and Marney Hochman (Last Resort). Foster joins a guest-cast list that also features Allison Tolman (Fargo), Rachael Holmes (Chasing Life) and Coby Bell (The Game).

Mad Dogs received a series order in February and is now filming in Puerto Rico. It is slated to premiere on Amazon Prime in 2016.

    Great actress and a great addition to a show I’m really looking forward to. Have watched the entire UK series (3 seasons) and it’s pretty solid, a bit slow in places but an incredible big name UK cast, great acting and overall very entertaining. Watched the US pilot and was surprised how faithful it was to the original, and that overall I found it as good or even better. Then later saw the two magic words Shawn Ryan and went ahhh right, that explains that lol. Key difference overall I felt, was the feeling that this US version could just “explode” in action where I felt it was maybe missing in places in the original, yet retain the sense of meandering stupidity/comic farce that was so fun. High hopes based on the pilot, and the fact it’s in such good hands.
