First Wives Club star Ryan Michelle Bathe is set to join Simone Missick in a recurring role on CBS, All Rise.
According to Deadline, Bathe will play Rachel Audubon, a “brilliant and fearless, hi-profile, take-no-prisoners litigation attorney whose charm is her superpower.” She’s also a “rare trial lawyer” who can alternate between both civil and criminal law as well as a chief legal correspondent for cable news networks.
Rachel’s personality is described as “polite and charming, but not so polite that it interferes in getting the job done.” Audubon is also a college friend of both judge Lola (Missick) and lawyer Mark (Wilson Bethel), having met Lola at Howard University and Mark at UCLA, where all three attended law school.
First Wives Club, which has been renewed for a second season, is currently streaming on BET+.
