A new prime-time drama project is in the works at Fox with former “Sex and the City” star Kim Cattrall in the lead role. Deadline reports that the Golden Globe winner will lead the cast of “Filthy Rich,” a soapy pilot from “The Help” writer-director Tate Taylor, Imagine Television and 20th Century Fox TV.
Cattrall will also be a producer on the project.
“Written and to be directed by Taylor based on the New Zealand series, ‘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,” Deadline reports. Cattrall will reportedly play Margaret Monroe, a family matriarch and the star of a popular lifestyle TV show.
Cattrall won a Golden Globe in 2003 for “Sex and the City,” one of four times she was nominated. She was also nominated five times for Primetime Emmys for the role — every year from 2000 to 2004.
