In the series, a half-hour political satire produced by Lionsgate, Sarandon will play Margaret Graves, the wife of former U.S. President Richard Graves (Nolte), who decides to follow her own political ambitions as her husband tries to right the wrongs of his administration. The series is set to air in Fall 2016.
Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”) created the series, and will write and executive produce the 10-episode series. Greg Shapiro (“The Hurt Locker”), Keith Eisner (“The Good Wife”) and Eric Weinberg (“Anger Management”) are also executive producers.
“We are overjoyed to have Susan join the cast of Graves,” said Mark S. Greenberg, President and CEO of EPIX. “Susan is a phenomenal actor whose comedic talents will bring a depth and richness of character to the role.”
Sarandon is repped by UTA.
