Breaking Bad star Betsy Brandt has landed a role in ABC's new drama series The Club.

The 13-episode series from Erin Brockovich writer Susannah Grant is described as a soap set in a private country club.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brandt will play Leslie Holbrooke, a warm-hearted woman whose husband has just ran off with his father's trophy wife after squandering the club's finances.

She is left alone with their son Evan, her legal consulting practice and her husband's crazy family.

Brandt recently starred alongside Michael J Fox in NBC's The Michael J. Fox Show.

The actress also last week signed on to star in Showtime's drama Masters of Sex.
