John Stamos is set for a key recurring role opposite Penn Badgley and Elizabeth Lail in Lifetime’s straight-to-series psychological thriller drama You, from Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble, set for premiere in 2018.
Written by Berlanti and Gamble based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel, You is described as a 21st century love story that asks, “What would you do for love?” When a brilliant bookstore manager Joe (Badgley) crosses paths with an aspiring writer, Beck (Lail), his answer becomes clear: anything.
Stamos will play Dr, Nicky, who becomes a fixture in Beck’s (Lail) life, much to the dismay of Joe (Badgley). Shay Mitchell also stars.
Stamos, in collaboration with Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, also has an untitled drama project inspired by his early professional years set at Amazon. It chronicles the fame and excess of daytime soaps in the 1980s. Stamos’ acting career was launched in 1982 when, at the age of 18, he landed the role of Blackie Parrish on the ABC daytime drama General Hospital.
Stamos, who produced and starred in Fox comedy series Grandfathered, was a series regular on Scream Queens, and he also produces and recurs on Netflix’s Fuller House. He is repped by Brillstein Entertainment partners and WME.
