Development News - Molly Parker to Co-Star on Amazon's 'Trial'; Parker Young & Stephen Bishop Join Bravo's 'My So Called Wife'

Development News - November 7, 2015

Amazon's Trial and Bravo's My So Called Wife.

  • Parker Young (Enlisted) and Stephen Bishop (Being Mary Jane) have been cast on the dark comedy pilot starring Inbar Lavi. Young will play Richard, a former football star who was conned into a marriage with Maddie (Lavi), known to him as "Alice." Bishop will play Patrick, a widower who just sold his hedge fund company and meets Maddie - this time known as "Saffron" - and is immediately intrigued.
  • Molly Parker (Deadwood, House of Cards) has landed a regular role on the drama pilot written by David E. Kelley - which has a series commitment. She will play Judge Keller, a judge with a low-key style but steely resolve who presides over the initial hearing at the wrongful death case that Billy (Billy Bob Thornton) is bringing against a huge corporation represented by his former firm. After publicly humiliating him, Keller finds herself on the hook when Billy turns the legal tables back on her.
