Zane Phillips, Michael Hsu Rosen & More Join Upcoming Netflix Series 'Glamorous'

Netflix is shaping up the cast of the upcoming new series Glamorous!

Miss Benny will star in the show, which was ordered to series earlier this year. They have actually been developing the series for three years, after it was originally ordered as a pilot on The CW in 2019.

Now, Zane Phillips, Michael Hsu Rosen, and Kim Cattrall are among those joining the cast.

Zane was recently seen in the final season of The CW’s Legacies and in Hulu’s Fire Island movie, while Michael was last seen on Netflix in Pretty Smart. Kim has recently starred in Hulu’s How I Met Your Father and Peacocks’ Queer as Folk reboot.

More details inside…

Glamorous tells the story of Marco Mejia (Miss Benny), a young gender non-conforming queer man whose life seems to be stuck in place until he lands a job working for legendary makeup mogul Madolyn Addison. It’s Marco’s first chance to figure out what he wants out of life, who he actually is, and what it really means for him to be queer.

Find out all about the new casting and their characters below…

Kim will play mogul Madolyn Addison, a veteran from the Golden Age of Supermodels who is the founder and CEO of the prestigious boutique beauty brand that bears her name. The quick-witted executive is focused on shaking up her business and sees an opportunity in Marco Mejia, taking him from the makeup counter to a seat at the table, ruffling feathers along the way.

Zane has been cast as Chad, devoted son to Madolyn and the Director of Sales for her beauty empire, who is caught in a never-ending quest to live up to his mother’s expectations.

Michael will play Ben, a fellow graphic designer at Glamorous by Madolyn, who finds her long-time crush on her colleague requited when they match by surprise, sparking a relationship that gets serious in more ways than one.

Jade Payton joins as Venetia, Madolyn’s ambitious and chic first assistant who takes the newly-hired Marco under her wing, showing him not only how to navigate the office, but queer Brooklyn nightlife as well.

Ayesha Harris has bee cast as Britt, a fellow graphic designer at Glamorous by Madolyn, who finds her long-time crush on her colleague requited when they match by surprise, sparking a relationship that gets serious in more ways than one.

Graham Parkhurst also joins as Parker, a confident, self-proclaimed jock who symblolizes unobtainable gay cis-male perfection. He has a chance encounter with Marco that sets in motion a game of pursuit.

The above cast are all series regulars, while the below will be recurring guest roles…

Diana Maria Riva has been cast as Julia, Marco’s unpretentious, no-nonsense mother who wishes her son would up his dreams of social media stardom and get a real job, which he finally does — much to her surprise — when he starts working for Madolyn.

Lisa Gilroy is Alyssasays, a first-generation social media influencer who pivoted to a career in marketing and now runs all social accounts at Glamorous by Madolyn, fiercely clinging to her former glory days.

Mark Deklin plays James, a charming and creative but underemployed documentary filmmaker whose chance encounter with the famous Madolyn Addison tumbles into an unexpected romance.

Glamorous will consist of 10 episodes.
