EXCLUSIVE: Dear Whites alum John Patrick Amedori is set as a series regular opposite Shailene Woodley, Betty Gilpin, DeWanda Wise and Gabrielle Creevy in Showtime’s Three women, an hour-long drama series based on Lisa Taddeo’s best-selling non-fiction. Blair Underwood, Jason Ralph and Blair Redford are also on the bill.
In Three women, adapted by Taddeo, a group of women take a crash course to dramatically change their lives. Lina, a housewife in suburban Indiana, is a decade into a passionless marriage when she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all-consuming and transforms her life. Sloane, a glamorous Northeastern entrepreneur, played by Wise, has an open marriage to Richard, until two sexy new strangers threaten their ambitious romance. Maggie (Creevy), a college student from North Dakota, goes through a severe storm after accusing her married English teacher, Aaron Knodel (Ralph) of an inappropriate relationship. Gia (Woodley), a writer who mourns the loss of her family, persuades each of these three spectacular “ordinary” women to tell her their stories, and her relationship with them changes the course of her life forever.
Amedori will play Jack, a seemingly short-lived guy on Gia’s journey to the final chapter of her book. But when he tries to embark on the love of his life, it sets off a series of chaotic events that propel them both into uncharted and dangerous waters.
three women is produced by Taddeo, showrunner Laura Eason, Kathy Ciric and Emmy Rossum. Louise Friedberg has signed on to direct the first two episodes, which she will also produce.
Amedori just starred as Gabe Mitchell in all four seasons of Dear Whites. Previous TV credits include The good doctor, retrospective and Aquarius. His cinematographic work also includes Almost Famous, The Vatican Tapes, The Waiting Game, Jayne Mansfield’s Car, A Beautiful Now and After the darkness. It is replaced by Gersh Agency and Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
