glamorous, who was originally commissioned to fly with The CW in 2019, tells the story of Marco Mejia, played by previously announced Miss Benny, a gender-nonconforming queer young man whose life seems to stick in place until he lands a job with the legendary makeup mogul Madolyn Addison. It’s Marco’s first chance to find out what he wants from life, who he really is, and what it really means to him to be queer.

Madolyn Addison of Cattrall, a veteran of the Golden Age of Supermodels, is the founder and CEO of the prestigious beauty boutique brand that bears her name. Focused on shaking up her business, the quick-witted executive sees an opportunity in Marco Mejia (Miss Benny), who takes him from the makeup counter to a chair at the table, while he flutters feathers.

Phillips plays Chad, Madolyn’s devoted son and the sales director of her beauty empire, who becomes entangled in a never-ending quest to live up to his mother’s expectations.

Payton plays the ambitious and chic first assistant to Venetia Madolyn who takes the newly hired Marco under her wing and shows him not only how to navigate the office but also how to make sense of the Brooklyn nightlife.

Rosen is Ben, a graphic designer at Glamorous by Madolyn, full of fear and opinion, who has built a wall around his heart. That is, until he meets Marco and is inspired to stumble out of his comfort zone.

Harris plays Britt, a fellow graphic designer at Glamorous by Madolyn, who rewards her long-standing crush on her co-worker when they surprisingly form a match, creating a relationship that turns serious in more ways than one.

Parkhurst plays Parker, a confident, self-proclaimed jock who symbolizes unattainable gay-cis-male perfection. He has a chance encounter with Marco which sets in motion a game of chase.
