Cox's character is described as, "demanding, intense, and full of herself."

MTV

"Margot is a big fish in a small pond—in her mind, at least. While holding auditions for the drama club, Margot puts hopefuls through a ghastly series of exercises, all designed to strip them down to their cores."

Cox is also booked to guest star on Bravo's Girlfriend's Guide To Divorce as Adele Northrop, a Pulitzer Prize-winning war journalist.

Filming for the upcoming season is already underway:
