There's a king of the castle at Franklin & Bash — or should we say queen?
Heather Locklear is joining the TNT lawyer dramedy for Season 3 as a new series regular named Rachel King, Entertainment Weekly reports. King, a new partner at the firm, is described as "a stunning trial lawyer, with stiletto heels and clothes tailored within an inch of their life."
Locklear, 51, enters the series following the departure of Garcelle Beauvais, who played Hanna Linden, a senior partner at the Infeld Daniels firm during the first two seasons.
This will be Locklear's first series regular gig since NBC's short-lived drama LAX in 2004. She also starred on Spin City and recurred heavily on the original Melrose Place for most of the soap's seven-year run. She guest-starred on the 2009 reboot and more recently on Hot in Cleveland.
