Gail O'Grady & Jeff Kober Join CMT's 'His Wives & Daughters'

Gail O'Grady
Emmy Award-nominee Gail O'Grady (NYPD Blue, Revenge, American Dreams) and Jeff Kober (The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy) have joined the cast for the upcoming CMT pilot His Wives & Daughters. The two join previously-announced cast member Jane Seymour in the one-hour comedic series centering on the eclectic and cunning wives and daughters of larger-than-life country music legend and infamous womanizer, Eddie Ray Banks. The pilot kicks-off when Eddie's estranged family is brought together unexpectedly, causing tempers to flare and old rivalries to resurface, setting the stage for startling secrets to emerge as an unforgettable mystery begins to unfold.

O'Grady plays Donna Banks, Eddie's vain and materialistic second wife who worked with him on his 1970s variety show and then stole him away from first wife, Lorna (Seymour). She has a codependent relationship with her daughter Carolyn.

Kober portrays Eddie Banks, the charismatic country music legend who became a crossover sensation in the 70s with a No. 1 album and hit movie, in addition to his television variety show. His tabloid-worthy personal life and relationships contributed to his fame just as much as his work achievements. In a career spanning almost 50 years Eddie always had a big heart, but his good intentions were ruined by hard-living.

Production on His Wives & Daughters is scheduled to begin this January and additional casting will be announced in the coming weeks.
