BRAVO MEDIA AND UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS ADD GOLDEN GLOBE WINNING ACTRESS UMA THURMAN AS GUEST STAR IN NEW SCRIPTED SERIES "MY SO CALLED WIFE" (WT)
Series Production is Underway in Vancouver
NEW YORK - September 21, 2016 - Bravo Media and Universal Cable Productions (UCP) announce Golden Globe winning actress Uma Thurman will guest star in the new original scripted series, "My So Called Wife," (wt) with a story arc spanning several episodes. Uma will play Lenny Cohen, the ultimate fixer. When the reclusive ring-leader of a group of con artists needs to keep his employees in line, eliminate an enemy, or whip up a world class omelette, there is only one person for the job - the lethal, articulate and mysterious Lenny Cohen.
"Uma and I have been friends for a very long time - I'm thrilled that after many tries we'll finally get to work together," said Executive Producer Adam Brooks. "Paul Adelstein and I wrote the role of Lenny Cohen specifically for her, and we are so excited to see how Uma's iconic and very special talents will bring to life this unique and provocative character."
"My So Called Wife" (wt) follows Maddie (Inbar Lavi, "Gang Related"), a persona shifting con-artist who is as beautiful as she is dangerous, which makes her unsuspecting victims even more tormented when they realize they have been used and robbed of everything... including their hearts. But things get complicated when her latest victims, Ezra (Rob Heaps, "Frankenstein and the Vampyre: A Dark and Stormy Night") and Richard (Parker Young, "Suburgatory") try to track her down just as she eyes her next mark, Patrick (Stephen Bishop, "Being Mary Jane").
"My So Called Wife" (wt) began production in August in Vancouver and premieres in 2017.
"My So Called Wife" (wt) is produced by Universal Cable Productions (UCP) with Adam Brooks and Paul Adelstein serving as Executive Producers.
