Chad Michael Murray (Agent Carter, Outlaws and Angels, Texas Rising and One Tree Hill) will portray rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Sam Phillips in the upcoming scripted drama inspired by the musical Million Dollar Quartet.
Jennifer Holland (American Pie Presents: The Book of Love, American Horror Story) will play Sam’s devoted wife Becky Phillips, while Margaret Anne Florence (Inside Amy Schumer, 30 Rock) is set to play his assistant-turned-girlfriend, Marion Keisker. Production begins this spring in Memphis with the series slated to premiere this November.
Phillips founded Sun Records, breaking and guiding young musicians like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Ike Turner and more. During the tumultuous civil rights movement, Phillips advocated for racial equality and broke barriers within the music industry.
Murray and Holland join previously-announced cast members Drake Milligan (Elvis Presley), Kevin Fonteyne (Johnny Cash), Christian Lees (Jerry Lee Lewis) and Jonah Lees (Jimmy Swaggart).
