Lucy Liu Joins Netflix's 'A Man in Full' Limited Series ...

Lucy Liu, a Hollywood icon who has barely taken a break from the TV world, is already gearing up to return to Netflix's limited series A Man in Full, which has been ordered by the streamer in a slate of six one-hour episodes back in November. The series will focus on a real estate mogul who falls from grace when faced with unexpected bankruptcy, and the people around him who try to exploit his shortcomings.

Liu joins top actors such as Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) who will play the titular "man," Charlie Croker. This means hell be crude, rude, and implacable to anyone who wishes to profit from his death. Joyce Newman is a successful clean beauty businesswoman who is sure to enrage her co-workers.

Liu has had long-running guest roles in CBS' Pearl, the internationally well-known courtroom drama Southland. Her most recent TV role was in the mystery series Elementary, in which she played Sherlock Holmes (Johnny Lee Miller) partner Joan Watson for seven seasons. She has recently appeared in the film Shazam! Fury of the Gods, a Warner Bros. and DC blockbuster.

A Man in Full is a 1998 novel by best-selling author Tom Wolfe, which is adapted for television by 11-time Emmy winner David E. Kelley, who serves as showrunner, executive producer, and writes the episodes. Kelley has previously directed other novels such as Big Little Lies and Big Sky, and created critically acclaimed series like Boston Legal and Doogie Howser.

Diane Lane (Y: The Last Man), William Jackson Harper (The Good Place), Aml Ameen (I May Destroy You), Sarah Jones (For All Mankind), Jon Michael Hill (Elementary), and Chante Adams (A League of Their Own) will join A Man in Full.

A Man in Full's further details, including additional cast members, directors, and the film's release date, have yet to be announced on Netflix.
