Anna Paquin: True Blood star joins Reese Witherspoon pilot Broken
Let’s hope Anna Paquin’s been keeping up with her Southern accent, because her latest role will take her out of Louisiana and into Texas.
EW has confirmed that Paquin has been cast in ABC’s upcoming legal pilot, Broken. Produced by Reese Witherspoon and written by Fear the Walking Dead‘s Meaghan Oppenheimer, Broken follows Gemma (Paquin), a ruthless Dallas divorce attorney whose life begins to unravel when her emotionally damaged, love-addicted sister resurfaces.
The Player‘s Charity Wakefield is on board to play Paquin’s sister, whose arrival brings up memories of a troubled childhood, and of course, family secrets. Fellow cast members include Penelope Ann Miller, Blair Underwood, and T.R. Knight.
