Kim Dickens has signed on to star in Showtime’s new drama pilot “Queen Fur,” the network announced Wednesday.
Lily Mae Harrington (“Some Freaks”), Michael Mosley (“Seven Seconds”), Jon Foster (“Like Father”), Joshua Mikel (“The Walking Dead”), Keith Machekanyanga (“Timeless”) and Spencer Howell have also been cast.
The story is set in small town Central Florida where beauty pageants, gun culture, Cuban revolutionaries and Southern hospitality co-exist and collide. Harrington plays Macy Dunleavy, a high school drop out, and Dickens will play her mother, a former beauty queen.
Mosley will play local gun salesman Todd, Mikel will play his associate Ryan, Foster will play Macy’s older brother Rob, and Machekanyanga will play small-time criminal Ralph.
Eileen Myers (“Masters of Sex”) writes and executive produces. Deb Spera (“Army Wives”) will also executive produce, and Sian Heder (“Orange Is the New Black”) will direct the pilot.
Dickens recently starred as Madison Clark in AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” and has also appeared in “House of Cards,” “Sons of Anarchy” and “Friday Night Lights.” She also shared in a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for “Deadwood.” She is repped by Gersh/Stephen Hirsh.
