The soapy drama pilot hails from exec producers Reese Witherspoon and her producing partner Bruna Papandrea through their Pacific Standard banner. The potential series follows a ruthless Dallas divorce attorney, Gemma (yet to be cast), as her life begins to unravel when her emotionally damaged, love-addicted sister resurfaces, triggering self-destructive tendencies and exposing long-hidden family secrets.
Miller will co-star as Elizabeth Hamilton, the wife of a Texas oil billionaire who is seeking revenge after having been left for a woman 20 years younger.
Miller, who also had a long arc on ABC’s “Mistresses,” joins a cast that includes “Grey’s Anatomy” alum T.R. Knight, who will play the nemesis of the lead character, Gemma.
Scribe Oppenheimer is a co-exec producer on the pilot. ABC Studios will produce.
Miller is repped by Untitled and APA.
