  • T.R. Knight has been cast as a series regular on the upcoming drama starring Kaley Cuoco. He previously starred for five seasons in ABC's Grey's Anatomy and recurred in the first two seasons of National Geographic's Genius. He was recently cast in the CBS Television Studios miniseries based on James Comey's book A Higher Loyalty.
  • He will play Davey, Cassie's (Cuoco) older brother who "gently" disagrees with her life choices and is constantly frustrated that his sister remembers their childhood very differently.
  • Noemi Gonzalez, Seidy Lopez and Madison Taylor Baez will co-star on the upcoming drama starring Christian Serratos. Gonzalez appeared in CBS' The Young and the Restless for a year. Lopez's guest credits include FOX's House, FX's The Bridge and Showtime's Shameless. Baez is a singer who will be making her television debut with this drama.
  • Gonzalez will play Suzette Quintanilla, Selena's (Serratos) sister and best friend, who learns to embrace her role as the first female drummer in Tejano music history.
  • Lopez will play Marcella Quintanilla, Selena's mother and the cohesive, nurturing force in the family, who believes in achieving their dreams against all odds.
  • Baez will play Young Selena, a happy-go-lucky child who learns what it takes to become an artist from her father (Ricardo Chavira).

  • She will play Jos, Margot's (Mann) daughter. As Margot's career takes flight, it's her husband and daughter who privately feel the effects of her success most keenly; for one of them, where previously there was conflict now comes a greater understanding, and for the other where there was love, comes hurt and betrayal.
