Selma Blair has taken to Instagram to reveal that she will be appearing in a recurring role in Paramount Network’s upcoming Heathers TV series, with Blair posting the following image complete with the caption “Do I look like step Mother Theresa?”…
According to Deadline, Blair will play Jade, “a stripper, menthol smoker, who is rough around the edges, but with a bit of glamour to her. She’s the gold-digging stepmother to Heather Duke (Brendan Scannell), who is simply biding her time until her 82-year-old husband kicks the bucket.”
The official synopsis for Heathers reads:
“Based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name, Heathers is an hour-long pitch-black comedy anthology set in the present day, as heroine Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox, “Under the Dome”) deals with a very different but equally vicious group of ‘Heathers.’ Also starring are James Scully as JD, Melanie Field (Wicked National Tour) as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell (Funny or Die) as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara. Original Heathers cast member Shannen Doherty will guest star as a pivotal, unnamed character as well.”
Heathers is set to air on Paramount Network in 2018.
