Channing Tatum's wife Jenna Dewan will visit the "Melrose Place" apartment complex in the first season. The actress who made her fame through "Step Up" will not get only a one-time stint but will be featured in a multi-episode arc as a young movie studio executive named Kendra Wilson.
Part of doing the business, Dewan's role is to lure aspiring filmmaker Jonah Miller (Michael Rady) into the industry. To E! Online, Executive Producer Todd Slavkin described Kendra as "ivy league graduate, wickedly sexy and wickedly smart."
For now, Dewan is scheduled to appear for two episodes only, in the seventh and eighth that air around October. However, there is a possibility that viewers will see more of her because Dewan made such an impression to the execs during the audition.
The CW will premiere "Melrose Place" on September 8 at 9/8c.
