Feb 3, 2010  •  Post A Comment

An Oscar-nominated actress will play the lead in ABC’s “Scoundrels,” a comedic drama series the network plans to air over the summer, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Virginia Madsen (“Sideways”) will play the matriarch of a criminal family trying to go straight, in the remake of the New Zealand series "Outrageous Fortune."

The series will get an eight-episode run. ABC earlier adapted the New Zealand show in a 2008 pilot (called “Good Behavior”) and cast Catherine O’Hara in the role.

Madsen’s most recent TV role was on USA Network’s “Monk.”
