Christina Hendricks has been tapped for a role in ANOTHER PERIOD, Comedy Central’s upcoming 10-episode scripted series. Written and executive produced by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, the comedy, set at the turn of the century, follows the misadventures of the Bellacourts – Newport, RI’s first family, who have absolutely nothing to offer to the world, but who have so much money that it doesn’t matter. Hendricks is set to play Chair, a new servant on the Bellacourts’ estate who is not who she appears to be.
Hendricks is currently starring on AMC’s Mad Men, which will be airing the second half of its final season in Spring of 2015. She previously appeared in 2011’s Drive opposite Ryan Gosling as well as 2012’s indie drama Struck By Lightning. And Firefly fans will well-remember her as Saffron, another woman who was not exactly what she seemed. She can next be seen in Lost River, reuniting with Gosling, who wrote, directed, and produced the fantasy thriller about a single mother who is swept into a dark underworld while her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town.
Hendricks is repped by ICM and Link Management.
