Netflix's upcoming dramedy series, Maid, seems to be raking up quite an ensemble cast. Revolution star Billy Burke is the latest star to join the series, which will be headline by Margaret Qualley.
The show is about Alex (Qualley), a single mother who turns to housekeeping to make ends meet as she battles against poverty, homelessness, and bureaucracy.
Written by Molly Smith Metzler, Maid is inspired by Stephanie Land's bestselling memoir, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive.
According to Deadline, Burke will play Hank, the father of Alex and the former husband of Paula (Andie MacDowell). Hank plays a contractor whose life and career was hard hit by alcoholism and the recession, but has survived by becoming deeply religious and sobering up. Now remarried with twins, he denies any of the darkness in his past.
Maid also stars Nick Robinson, Anika Noni Rose, and Tracy Vilar. Margot Robbie's LuckyChap Entertainment is attached to produce the series in collaboration with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros Television.
Metzler will serve as showrunner and executive producer along with John Wells, Erin Jontow, Robbie, Tom Ackerley, Brett Hedblom, and Stephanie Land.
