Ben J. Pierce & Pierson Fode Join CW's Gender Non-Conforming Pilot 'Glamorous'

Ben J. Pierce and Pierson Fode have signed up to star in The CW’s gender non-conforming pilot, THR reports.

Glamorous will revolve around Marco, played by Ben, a gender non-conforming recent high school graduate lands the gig of a lifetime interning at a cosmetics company whose products he panned on YouTube.

Marco is described as an ambitious and creative gender non-conforming teenager who uses makeup and fashion to let his queer self bloom. Fresh off his high school graduation, Marco’s life changes when an unplanned rant on YouTube bashing a cosmetics company for their shoddy products lands him a dream internship at the side of its founder and CEO, Madolyn (Brooke Shields).

On his own for the first time, this is Marco’s chance to live, love and grow to understand what it really means to be queer.

Pierson will play Chad, an ambitious alpha male who works at the cosmetics company his mother, Madolyn, founded who styles himself as her heir apparent.

While openly gay, Chad is buttoned down and unsophisticated, with a personality and wardrobe that would be more at home on Wall Street than the beauty industry.
