Broadway’s Corey Cott (Bandstand, Newsies) has joined the cast of a new FOX series pilot called Filthy Rich. This series was written and will be directed by Tate Taylor, writer and director of The Help, and is based on the New Zealand series that shares the same name.
According to Deadline, the series is:
…a larger than life Southern Gothic dramedy which revolves around two strong, sharp women who will go to any length to protect their loved ones and get their due. When the wealthy CEO of the world’s largest Christian network dies in a plane crash, his wife and adult children are stunned to discover he has grown, illegitimate kids who are also in his will. When the steel azalea matriarch of the family tries to pay them to go away, these newly legitimized heirs have very different ideas and insist on not only staying in town, but becoming part of the family empire.
Cott will be playing Eric Monroe—husband, father of two, and Senior Vice President of Operations at the network created by his parents. Filthy Rich will also include Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City), Aubrey Dollar (Battle Creek), Benjamin Levy Aguilar (Black Spot), and Mark L. Young (The Comeback).
