Anne Archer taking over Privileged role

Anne ArcherAnne Archer has joined the cast of the new CW series Privileged. She'll be replacing Marsha Mason in the role of Laurel Limoges, a wealthy Palm Beach resident raising her orphaned granddaughters. Mason appeared in the drama's pilot episode. Privileged is the series' newest title. At different stages it was called How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls and, in the network's recent upfront, Surviving the Filthy Rich.

The drama begins with twentysomething Megan Smith (played by Joanna Garcia) unexpectedly getting hired by Laurel Limoges to tutor the woman's teen granddaughters. Laurel is a widow whose fortune comes from a successful cosmetics empire.

It's unfortunate that Marsha Mason didn't work out, but Anne Archer is a terrific fit for a show like this. She's had more TV roles over the last few years. She played Melinda's mother on Ghost Whisperer, and appeared in several episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia as Dennis and Dee's mom. It will be fun to compare her performance with Jessica Walters' grandmother role, since Privileged is airing after 90210 on Tuesdays this fall. Which wealthy matriarch will rule the CW?
