Deadline reports Nicole Ari Parker has been cast as one of the leads in the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced NBC drama pilot The Secret Lives Of Husbands And Wives.  Interestingly, the folks over at S&A have also reported that Parker has been cast as the lead in an urban drama entitled Burn.

The Secret Lives Of Husbands And Wives is described as thriller-dramatic soap that centers on a murder and the secrets and lies within a tightly woven group of three suburban couples and their families exposed in its aftermath.  Parker will play half of one of the three couples, Paula, a tough and strikingly beautiful trophy wife who, after 12 years of a troubled marriage, questions whether to stay with her husband because of love or respect… all while having no idea that he is financially ruined.

The erotic thriller Burn tells the tale of a beautiful young temptress (played by Parker) as she sets up her lover (Sean Faris) to take the fall for her husband’s death. Burn also stars Danny Glover & Giancarlo Esposito.

Shooting on Burn is scheduled to begin in November in New Orleans.

Television drama The Secret Lives Of Husbands And Wives will air in 2013.
