The star of 1990s sitcom “Suddenly Susan” and 1980 shipwreck adventure romance “The Blue Lagoon”, Brooke Shields is to feature in Eva Longoria’s beauty industry drama, “Glamorous”.

Shields is joined by Jane Payton, who is to play Madolyn’s personal assistant, Venetia. Both have their wits about them, and while Madolyn is well versed in the business guile needed to retain her position in the company and industry at large, Venetia has knowledge of and contacts within the city’s LGBTQ community and its underground scene.
