Kim Cattrall is set to headline a new Fox pilot, playing a character that's worlds away from her freewheeling "Sex and the City" alter ego Samantha Jones.
Cattrall will star in "Filthy Rich," a soapy drama that revolves around an uber-rich Christian family that's rocked to its core when its patriarch suddenly dies, setting off a wave of shocking revelations. The actress plays matriarch Margaret Monroe, who headlines a massively popular lifestyle TV show on a conservative network, which she runs with her husband.
Here's the scoop on the series, per Deadline:
'Filthy Rich' is described as a larger-than-life Southern gothic dramedy that revolves around two strong, sharp women who will go to any length to protect their loved ones and get their due. When the wealthy CEO of the world’s largest Christian network dies in a plane crash, his wife and adult children are stunned to discover he has grown, illegitimate kids who are also in his will. When the steel azalea matriarch of the family tries to pay them to go away, these newly legitimized heirs have very different ideas and insist on not only staying in town but becoming part of the family empire.
Color us intrigued.
The show is based on the New Zealand series of the same name, and is written and directed by Tate Taylor ("The Help," "The Girl on the Train"), who will also produce. Cattrall is also serving as a producer on the project.
