LUCY LAWLESS TO ADD
FIREPOWER TO THE WB
ACTRESS SIGNS DEAL TO BE ONE OF THE STARS ON THE NETWORK'S
FALL DRAMA "TARZAN"...
...AND TO DEVELOP A NEW NETWORK SERIES FOR THE
BURBANK, CA (September 8, 2003) - Lucy Lawless (DreamWorks'
Americans," "Xena Warrior Princess") will become one of the
stars on The WB's highly
anticipated fall drama TARZAN in the role of Kathleen Clayton,
magnate and the title character's aunt. In addition, Ms.
Lawless signed an
exclusive series development deal with The WB for the
The announcements were made today by Jordan Levin, President,
of The WB. "Lucy has a tremendous sense of humor, warmth and
grace," Mr. Levin
said. "She has a fun, larger-than-life personality that will
character of Kathleen Clayton as she makes it her own, and
that is what attracted us
to her for future development."
On TARZAN, Ms. Lawless plays Kathleen Clayton, a New York
and the aunt to Tarzan (Travis Fimmel). Within the Clayton
return has unleashed rivalries that have festered for decades.
Richard (Mitch Pileggi, "The X Files") is bitterly estranged
from his witty,
sardonic and beautiful younger sister Kathleen Clayton. While
Richard believes that
his desire to rehabilitate Tarzan and make him a real member
of society is in
Tarzan's own best interest, Kathleen believes that what Tarzan
really needs is
their help and support as he finds his own way in this strange
new world. Now
that their nephew has returned from the dead as Tarzan,
Richard and Kathleen
have squared off in a new battle. While they are both driven
by love - for
Tarzan and for the family - they also know that whoever
controls Tarzan, controls
Greystoke Industries as well. Ms. Lawless will be a series
regular in the
first season, while developing a series for next fall.
Ms. Lawless, who worked with TARZAN executive producer Laura
"Spider-Man," is repped by the Endeavor Agency and Original
Management. The deal was
negotiated by Jeanne Newman. Ms. Lawless is currently working
Kripke, co-executive producer of TARZAN, in the theatrical
film, "Boogeyman." TARZAN
is from executive producers Laura Ziskin ("Spider-Man,"
David Gerber ("The Lost Battalion"), P.K. Simonds ("Party of
Five," "Beauty and
the Beast") and co-executive producer Eric Kripke ("Battle of
the Sexes") and
is produced by Laura Ziskin Productions, The Gerber Company
Warner Bros. Television Production Inc.
