Tatyana Ali, Malcolm-Jamal Warner To Star In ‘Olive Forever’
Tatyana Ali, Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Christian Antidormi have been cast as series regulars in USA Network’s Olive Forever. The trio will star opposite Emily Rudd in the comedic crime drama pilot. The project is written by Brian Duffield and will be directed by Matt Shakman.
Olive Forever follows the exploits of Olive (Rudd), a high school student, con artist, cat burglar and chameleon who’s mature beyond her years. She is a savvy survivor who knows she can “get away with anything.” A foster kid, Olive knows how to work the system, her tough exterior protecting a girl who’s just looking for a home.
Ali will play Alison, Olive’s foster mother, a quick-witted, tender community college professor who strives to guide Olive away from her criminal past. Warner will portray Taylor, Olive’s foster father, an open-hearted community college professor who offers Olive help when no one else would. Antidormi will play a smooth-talking mysterious figure that matches and challenges Olive’s skills.
