Blythe is described as glamorous yet down to earth Park Avenue widow. For Potts, the project is in first position to her other pilot, USA comedy Paging Dr. Freed. Murder In Manhattan brings Designing Women alumna Potts back to ABC where she co-starred in another dramedy, series GCB. She is with Innovative, Frontline Management and attorney David Fox.
