Jennifer will guest star on the Fox’s tv series The Mob Doctor for at least 3 episodes with the first one to air on Monday November 26th.
Creator Josh Berman told TvFanatic: “I’m thrilled to have Jennifer Beals join the cast for at least three episodes. We wrote the role of Celeste LaPree specifically with her in mind. She’s gorgeous, empowered, and strong. The character used to date Constantine Alexander (William Forsythe) before he was sent to jail, fifteen years ago.
She’s a former call girl turned high class madam and she’s now married to a hypochondriac, mafia boss that runs Chicago’s Northside. In a world of organized crime, dominated by men, Celeste LaPree has made a name for herself. Unbeknownst to those around her, she has a secret agenda that may change the face of organized crime in Chicago.”
The Mob Doctor airs on Fox Mondays at 9/8c http://www.fox.com/the-mob-doctor/
The series follows Grace Devlin (Jordana Spiro), a surgical resident, who juggles her hospital duties with protecting her brother from the Mob. The series is set and filmed in Chicago.
