Nicole Ari Parker (Rosewood) Caitlin Carver (The Fosters) and Madeline Blake (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) are set as series regulars in ABC drama pilot Model Woman.

The project, from Sony TV’s TriStar Television and ABC Studios, is a fictionalized family soap inspired by Robert Lacey’s book Model Woman: Eileen Ford And The Business Of Beauty, the recently published biography of the outspoken and controversial woman who started as a model and went on to co-found the famous Ford Modeling Agency with her husband Jerry.

Parker will play Helenjane Harris, a former model who runs her own modeling agency, the top competition for Bertie Geiss’ Geiss Agency. Carver will play Michelle, a reluctant beauty and aspiring photographer who is both intellectual and talented; an artist who marches to the beat of a different drummer. Blake is Gemma, the next new face at Geiss Agency. She is determined to meet Bertie so she camps out in the office every day for a week with high hopes.

Parker will be seen in David E Talbert’s holiday feature A Meyer’s Christmas later this year and can currently be seen recurring on Fox’s Rosewood opposite Morris Chestnut. Other recent credits include her daytime series on Fox The Boris & Nicole Show. She is repped by Gersh and LINK. Carver, repped by Abrams Artists Agency, Red Rock Entertainment and attorney Chad Christopher, has recurred on Hit the Floor, Nashville and in the feature film Paper Town. She also has guest starred on NCIS, Heroes Reborn and Stalker among others.
