    Maid: Andie MacDowell Joins Netflix’s Comedy Drama Series

    Golden Globe nominee Andie MacDowell (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Groundhog Day, Sex, Lies, and Videotape) is set to star in Netflix’s upcoming comedy drama series Maid in a leading role opposite Emmy nominee Margaret Qualley (Fosse/Verdon, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), according to Deadline.

    Created and written by Molly Smith Metzler, Maid is inspired by the bestselling memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive by Stephanie Land. The story revolves around Alex (Qualley), a single mother who turns to housekeeping to — barely — make ends meet as she battles against poverty, homelessness, and bureaucracy. Told primarily through her point of view, Maid is described as a beautiful, alive, gritty, and inspiring exploration of poverty in America.

    MacDowell will play Alex’s mother, Paula, a self-proclaimed artist, who is the life of every party. She is eccentric, passionate, scrappy, and unabashed about her sexuality, which attracts an endless rotation of boyfriends. However, everything that makes Paula infectious to be around is also indicative of her constant struggle with her psychological demons – a struggle she has never acknowledged, and often does not win.

    The Maid cast also includes Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) and Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls). The Vancouver production was underway before filming was paused earlier this week due to delays in COVID-19 test results.

Executive producers also include Wells and Erin Jontow with John Wells Productions.; Robbie, Tom Ackerley, and Brett Hedblom for LuckyChap Entertainment; and Land.
