ALSO EMERGES IN FINAL SEASON OF POPULAR MTV COMEDY “AWKWARD”
LOS ANGELES (October 20, 2015) – Rising actress JENNIFER O’BRIEN flirts with danger in an upcoming episode of ABC’s highly-anticipated new crime-drama, WICKED CITY, scheduled to air on November 3rd.
Set in the 1980’s, WICKED CITY focuses on two LAPD detectives (Jeremy Sisto and Gabriel Luna) as they search for a pair of romantically-linked serial killers (Ed Westwick and Erika Christensen) terrorizing the Sunset Strip. In the second episode, O’Brien steps into this threatening tale as the overly-spoiled young woman, Bridget Cartazzo.
O’Brien was thrilled at the opportunity to join in the wicked fun, adding “I loved diving into the 80’s and this character, with her awesome hair, makeup and clothes – what fun! And, Ed and director Jon Cassar were amazing at making me feel right at home.”
Fans will recognize this pretty-and-witty actress from her recent summertime appearance on TV One’s new comedy series, BORN AGAIN VIRGIN. In the episode titled “Slaying Your Dragons,” O’Brien unexpectedly encounters her old co-worker Jenna, whom she may or may not have betrayed.
Later this year, O’Brien steps into the comedy limelight once again in the fifth and final season of MTV’s fan-favorite, AWKWARD. In the episode “Home Again, Home Again,” O’Brien plays a Bridezilla that turns to Tamara (Jillian Rose Reed) to solve her wedding day problem.
Also coming soon, O’Brien will star in the new comedy web series SUNDAY MORNINGS, written by Marri Savinar and produced by Cassie Ramoska.
Born in Geneva, Switzerland, this international beauty has been building a solid reputation in the industry since arriving in Hollywood. Her on-screen credits also include recent appearances on Lifetime Network’s MY HAUNTED HOUSE and several notable indie short films.
Jennifer O’Brien is represented by Agent Fatmata Kamara at Abrams Artist Agency and Managers Robert Saunders and Ryan Lewis Tunick at Luber Roklin Entertainment.
