From a media release:
RISING STAR KACEY ROHL JOINS THE CAST OF GLOBALâ€™S NEW CANADIAN ORIGINAL SERIES WORKING THE ENGELS
Shaw Media and Halfire-CORE Entertainment announced today Kacey Rohl (Hannibal, The Killing, Red Riding Hood) will star in Global Televisionâ€™s new half-hour original comedy series Working the Engels. Kacey Rohl joins previously announced screen and stage legend Andrea Martin. Commissioned by Shaw Mediaâ€™s original content team, produced by Halfire-CORE Entertainment and written by Katie Ford (Miss Congeniality, Desperate Housewives) and Jane Ford (Listen Missy, Material World), the 12-episode series begins production in Toronto this fall.
Kacey Rohl portrays Jenna Engel, a young lawyer working for a huge law firm at her dream job â€“ if the dream is working 18-hour days, with no social life, frayed nerves, a crappy apartment, a frequently nude roommate, and a tyrannical boss. When Jennaâ€™s father dies suddenly and leaves a mountain of debt, she decides to quit her job â€“ the only thing she ever wanted â€“ and take over her fatherâ€™s small storefront law practice. Unfortunately this also means taking on her eccentric relatives as co-workers, including her self-involved mother Ceil (Andrea Martin), despite being the only one qualified to practice law. Jenna, the youngest sibling, becomes the unlikely family patriarch, running the law firm and keeping her crazy family together.
Kacey Rohl is best known for her roles in Hannibal as Sterling Fitch; in The Killing as Prudence; and in the dark fantasy Red Riding Hood. Rohl also starred in the award-winning 2011 indie comedy Sunflower Hour, in which she portrayed Satan Spawn and showed her comedy chops in David Shoreâ€™s pilot Doubt opposite Steve Coogan for ABC.
The series is produced by Halfire-CORE Entertainment with Katie Ford, Jane Ford, Howard Busgang, Tom Nursall, and Noreen Halpern serving as Executive Producers.
