Elizabeth Perkins is set for a major recurring role opposite Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson on the upcoming second season of HBO Max’s period erotic comedy Minx.
Minx is set in 1970s Los Angeles and centers around Joyce (Lovibond), an earnest young feminist who joins forces with a low-rent publisher (Johnson) to create the first erotic magazine for women.
Perkins will play Constance, the wealthy widow of a Greek shipping magnate, in a season-long arc.
Idara Victor, Jessica Lowe, Lennon Parham, Michael Angarano and Oscar Montoya also star.
Minx comes from creator and showrunner Ellen Rapoport, who exec produces alongside Paul Feig and Dan Magnante for Feigco Entertainment, Ben Karlin and Rachel Lee Goldenberg, who also directed the pilot. Jake Johnson serves as a co-executive producer. Lionsgate Television is the studio.
