According to Deadline, Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley will have a recurring role in NBC’s The Slap.
The 8-episode miniseries, based on a 2011 Australia drama, stars Peter Sarsgaard and Mary Louise-Parker. In the original series, a family is torn apart after a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. As feelings about the incident escalate, long-held secrets are exposed, resulting in a lawsuit.
The Slap is expected to continue filming through the end of the year. Today, the miniseries is filming at Kaufman Astoria Studios.
