The Upstairs-Downstairs drama series was created by Susannah Grant
Natalie Zea will play a lead on ABC’s straight-to-series drama, “Members Only,” a studio representative told TheWrap.
“Members Only” follows the activities of an elite Connecticut country club’s members and staff. Zea will play the highly educated, well-bred and most mentally stable member of the club’s founding family.
She joins already announced cast members Chris Conroy, Michael Landes, Betsy Brandt, Callie Hernandez, Boris Kodjoe and Jaime Lee Kirchner.
Represented by UTA, manager Robert Semon and attorney James Feldman, Zea just came off a recurring role on Fox’s “The Following.” She also recently starred on the failed Amazon pilot, “The Rebels.” Her other credits include FX’s “Justified” and ABC’s “Dirty Sexy Money.”
Produced by Susannah Grant (“Party of Five,” “Erin Brockovich”) for CBS TV Studios and ABC Television Studios, the series was also produced in association with Timberman/Beverly Prods.
Repped by CAA and Brillstein, R.J. Cutler (“Nashville”) has been tapped to direct on the series.
Deadline first reported Zea and Cutler’s additions to “Members Only.”
