Written by Meaghan Oppenheimer, the project follows the personal and professional life of Gemma (Paquin), a ruthless divorce attorney in Dallas whose life begins to unravel when her emotionally damaged, love-addicted sister (Charity Wakefield) resurfaces, triggering self-destructive tendencies and exposing long-hidden family secrets.

Murciano, who most starred as Marco Diaz on Netflix’s Bloodline, will play Peter, Gemma’s (Paquin) childhood friend-turned-nemesis after she represented his ex-wife in his divorce. Peter comes from a similarly rough upbringing as Gemma, but through hard work has become a successful doctor.

Murciano, best known for starring on CBS’ mystery drama Without a Trace, has also appeared on Power, 666 Park Avenue, NCIS and Medium.

Archuleta’s Latest Album Begin. Debuts on the Billboard Charts

He may be participating in a long-term Mormon mission, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have brand new David Archuleta music to hold you over…

The 21-year-old Honduran/Spanish American singer and former American Idol runner-up, who announced last December that he was devoting two years of his life to a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, has released his latest album, which debuts on the Billboard 200 this week at No. 28.

Entitled Begin., the album is a collection of 10 cover songs and one original, “Broken,” which was co-written by Archuleta. He recorded the album before starting his mission in South America.

The remakes include R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts,” Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush’s “Don’t Give Up” and Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors.”

David Archuleta's Begin Album

Signed to RCA after his success on Idol, Archuleta is now on the independent Highway Records imprint, owned by Desert Book, the publishing arm of the LDS church.

That qualifies Begin. to appear on Billboard’s Top Independent Chart, where it debuts at No. 5. The album makes an even higher bow on the Top Internet Albums chart, entering at No. 3. That equals Archuleta’s previous highest peak on the survey, when his self-titled debut album entered at No. 3 in 2008.

Begin. is Archuleta’s fifth album to appear on the Billboard 200. He has had one album debut on the chart every year since 2008.

Archuleta Releases “I’ll Never Go” Music Video

He may be preparing for a two-year Mormom mission… But that hasn’t stopped David Archuleta from makin’ sweet music.

The 21-year-old Honduran/Spanish American singer recently released the music video for his latest single “I’ll Never Go,” which was shot in Manila.

It’s the latest release from Archuleta’s fourth studio album Forevermore, a collection of original Filipino classic love songs recorded in English.

“I wouldn’t say that I sound better than the original singers because the singers here are so amazing. But I would hope that I could pay tribute to them with this album,” said Archuleta previously.

Forevermore has been in stores since the spring.

In addition, the former American Idol runner-up is preparing a new album called, BEGIN, for which he’s planning to re-record singles by artists like Christina Aguilera, Sarah McLachlan, Cyndi Lauper and U2.

Along with the cover songs, there is one new song called “Broken” which Archuleta wrote himself.
