Sullivan is part of the core leading cast of the Tyler Perry written, directed and produced new susdy drama for TLC entitled Too Close To Home. The series began production and principal shooting this week at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. According to Deadline, the series is slated to premiere later this summer, and the show is the first dramatic scripted series ever on TLC.
Not only is Kelly Sullivan a part of the ensemble cast, but none other than former Melrose Place and Dynasty star Heather Lockler! Apparently, Locklear will be a guest star on the series.

In story, the eight-part drama follows Anna (Savre), a young woman who escaped her working-class upbringing in Alabama to start fresh in Washington, D.C. After making national headlines in a major political scandal involving one of the nation’s most powerful players, she is forced to return to her roots and face a past she thought she’d left behind. Seeking help and forgiveness from the same people she abandoned for a “better” life, Anna finds herself right back where she worked so hard to escape. Locklear plays Katelyn, a smart, savvy and beautiful D.C. wife.
