ABC continues its new trend of beefing up its primetime lineup for the fall season with new soaps! The previously announced Americana pilot now has some stars attached to its cast. The female lead of the series will be played by Twilight co-star Ashley Greene who will work opposite former Without a Trace star, Anthony LaPaglia!
According to Deadline.com: “Americana is a soap about a famous fashion industry clan. It centers on iconic fashion designer Robert Soulter (Anthony LaPaglia), the patriarch of a sprawling family who just welcomed a new member, Alice Clarke (Greene), a young designer whose shocking arrival turns the family and the legendary label inside out.
Playing a character named Alice won’t be new for Greene, best known for her role as Alice Cullen in the blockbuster Twilight franchise. Americana reunites the actress with ABC where she recurred on Pan Am this season.”
So has ABC taken part of its play book here from afternoon fashion house sudser, The Bold and the Beautiful? Stay tuned!
