BREAKING BAD's Betsy Brandt Lands Lead in ABC's THE CLUB
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brandt has been cast in ABC's upcoming drama series THE CLUB, which is in second position to 'MICHAEL J. FOX,' should NBC change its mind about the now-halted freshman comedy. From ERIN BROCKOVICH's Susannah Grant, the series was recently given a 13-episode order.
THE CLUB is an "upstairs/downstairs soap centered on a private country club. Brandt will play Leslie Holbrooke, a warm-hearted woman with a dry wit whose husband just ran off with his father's trophy-wife stepmother after squandering the club's finances. She's left alone with her 11-year-old son, Evan, her legal consulting practice and her husband's crazy and wealthy family. Irreverent and funny, she's not above seeing the humor in her situation. She doesn't play sports or drink, hates the sun, and is way too outspoken to ever fit in at the club -- but she's there anyway."
Brandt had guest roles on TV's Without a Trace, Judging Amy, ER, Boston Legal, The Practice and NCIS. She is currently featured in the AMC drama series Breaking Bad as Marie Schrader. She has also played Sandy in the NBC drama Parenthood. Her film credits include Shelf Life, Confidence and Memphis Bound and Gagged.
