It’s going to a be a family affair on the set of ABC’s Whiskey Cavalier. Marika Domińczyk (Grey’s Anatomy), wife of star Scott Foley, is set for a multi-episode arc, and Cougar Town and Scrubs alum Christa Miller, wife of executive producer Bill Lawrence, is slated to guest star on the dramedy from Lawrence, Dave Hemingson and Warner Bros. TV.
Written by Hemingson, Whiskey Cavalier, from WBTV and Lawrence’s studio-based Doozer Prods., follows the adventures of FBI agent Will Chase (codename: Whiskey Cavalier) — played by Foley — who, following an emotional break-up, is assigned to work with quick, cunning and completely fearless CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge (codename: Fiery Tribune) — played by Lauren Cohan. Together, they lead an interagency team of spies who periodically save the world (and each other) while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics.
Domińczyk plays Martyna (Tina) Marek, a sexy, tough-as-nails mercenary who collides with Team Whiskey during a harrowing mission in Eastern Europe. Her arrival fuels romance, rivalry and shifting allegiances, as this charismatic femme fatal rewrites the rules everyone is playing by.
Miller plays Kelly Ashland, a close friend of Frankie’s (Cohan) family who stepped in after the death of her parents. Now a Federal Judge, the steely, non-nonsense Kelly finds herself embroiled in a crisis that puts her directly in the sights of Team Whiskey.
Cast also includes Susan Sampson (Ana Ortiz), Tyler James Williams (Edgar Standish), Jai Datta (Vir Das) and Ray Prince (Josh Hopkins).
Hemingson executive produces alongside Doozer’s Lawrence and Jeff Ingold; Foley is a producer.
