O’Hara Joining Thomas’ Good Behavior


The Hollywood Reporter says Catherine O’Hara is in negotiations to play the matriarch at the center of “Good Behavior,” Rob Thomas’ dramedy pilot for ABC.

Warren Christie has landed the lead of another ABC drama pilot, “Prince of Motor City,” which also has cast Andie MacDowell.

“Behavior,” from ABC Studios, is based on the New Zealand format “Outrageous Fortune” and centers on the matriarch (O’Hara) of a family of criminals who decides that it’s time for her brood to go straight after her husband ends up in prison for five years.

“Motor City,” from ABC Studios, is a gothic family soap inspired by William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” that centers on a young Harvard philosophy professor (Christie) forced to return to Detroit and take over the family’s auto company.

MacDowell will play his mother.
