series regular role in ABC Family Drama pilot “Stay”

Great news!

Alicia Coppola, Brianna Brown and Leonard Earl Howze have booked series regular roles in ABC Family drama pilot Stay.

Described as an edge-of-your-seat thriller, Stay centers on a recently widowed police detective and his two daughters who are stranded at a foreboding hotel during a storm and must unravel the hotel’s mysteries to escape.

Coppola, repped by APA and manager Leslie Allan-Rice, plays Alison, Jake’s mother and the wife of the conservative, emotionally withdrawn Frank, whom she fears. A steady diet of antidepressants help block out her crumbling marriage and keeps her sane.

Revenge 1×07 – Charade

Sorry for not having updated the TV appearances in the last weeks; I don’t have that much time to keep the table up to date, but I’ll try to post the upcoming appearances on Twitter and on Facebook – for those of you who don’t use either one of them, you can see my latest tweets here on the page (scroll down a bit, on the right side beneath the links and the email subscription thing).

But, what jolted me awake, was something I just saw a few minutes ago when I wanted to check if I had forgotten to announce another TV appearance today:

Detroit 1-8-7 Gallery

My recording got messed up but I managed to get my hand on screencaps, so a little bit later than planned, here’s the gallery. Sorry for the bad quality.

I hope you enjoyed Alicia’s appearance in the episode “Motor City Blues” and you cross your fingers that they don’t cancel the show. I wanna see her again in season 2! 😉

Character Info, Quotes & Gallery

Have fun 🙂

Btw. I got ahold of screencaps from her American Dreams episodes. That means after posting the “The Sentinel” gallery at the end of the month, I’ve got a stock of caps for at least a month before I run out of galleries to post 😉

Correction: Detroit 1-8-7 : ep. 1×17 & date change

Sorry announcing the episode number faultily; obviously my mind got confused by the 1-8-7 of the series title and the date of the press release’s release (it was released on Feb. 18)    The episode “Motor City Blues” in which Alicia appears, isn’t 1×18 but 1×17.

Just now I read a new announcement from ABC (so it’s kinda fortunate that I made that mistake earlier, otherwise I wouldn’t have noticed this)

By the way, Alicia won’t be in the episode after Motor City Blues, “Blackout”(source: ABC). So let’s hope the series won’t get cancelled, then we might see her again in the second season.
