Jessica Paré just can’t get away from period dramas.
The Mad Men star has been cast in The Interestings, Amazon’s pilot about friends who meet at an arts camp in 1974 when they’re in their teens, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The potential series, based on Meg Wolitzer’s novel and starring Six Feet Under‘s Lauren Ambrose, follows the friends over the 30 years following their camp experience.
Paré will play Ash, a successful theater director and philanthropist who is harboring a secret from her husband.
Lyn Greene and Richard Levine (Nip/Tuck) penned the pilot and Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) is on board to direct.
In addition to Mad Men, Paré’s TV resume includes stints on Jack & Bobby, Life and Satisfaction.
