As Variety reported, the Hollywood actress will star as "Lulu Wallace:" a thriving public relations professional who suddenly loses everything during a messy divorce. But that's not where the story ends. As the currently untitled series plays out, we'll watch the divorcee return home to dad's house with a newfound life purpose - to save his declining career as a magician. Clearly, Bowen has a soft spot for magicians. Huh?
