A Younger woman is going to the dogs.
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.
