UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., July 29 (UPI) -- Canadian actress Molly Parker has joined the ensemble of the upcoming legal drama series "The Firm," it was announced Friday.

NBC, Entertainment One, Sony Pictures Television Networks and Global Television confirmed the casting news Friday.

Parker is to play Abby McDeere in the network's small-screen adaptation of John Grisham's best-selling novel, which is being executive-produced by Grisham and Lukas Reiter.

"Ten years ago, Abby helped her husband Mitchell McDeere bring down a Memphis law firm that was a front for the Chicago mob. Her life was never the same," NBC said in a synopsis. "Abby's a true partner to Mitch -- a smart, resourceful woman who after a tumultuous decade is excited to start a new life in Washington, D.C., as a school teacher."

Parker, who is known for her work in TV's "Deadwood" and "Swingtown," joins a previously announced cast including Josh Lucas as Mitch; Juliette Lewis as Tammy, who is now Mitch's receptionist; and Callum Keith Rennie as Ray McDeere, Mitch's charming yet volatile older brother, NBC said.
