Mimi Gianopulos (Baby Daddy), Helen Madelyn Kim (GLOW), Tommy Dorfman (13 Reasons Why) and Erin Pineda (Major Crimes) are set for recurring roles opposite Georgia Flood in American Princess, Lifetime’s straight-to-series dramedy from Jenji Kohan, Jamie Denbo and Tara Herrmann.
Created, written and executive produced by Denbo (Ronna & Beverly), American Princess follows Amanda (Flood), an Upper East Side socialite who runs away from her own dream wedding when she realizes that the life she thought she wanted wasn’t actually right after all. When she stumbles upon a Renaissance Faire, she experiences an unexpected awakening, leading her to leave behind everything she thought she cared about. While at the Faire, Amanda quickly develops new friendships, rivalries and romance that opens her eyes to new beginnings.

Gianopulos will play Morgan, Amanda’s dry and judgmental high school BFF. She is single and successful in her career as a branding consultant. Kim is Lexi, Korean-born, raised Jewish by her adoptive gay Jewish parents and one of Amanda’s besties. She is sweet, shallow and not the sharpest tool in the shed. Dorfman portrays Nick, Amanda’s gay best friend. Nick’s exquisite taste and sharp wit have solidified him as an influencer in the social media world. Pineda will play Helen, a Rennie with a crazy streak. She’s a hedonist and a wild woman who lives life to the fullest while traveling the Ren Faire circuit all year round.
