Golden Brooks Joins TNT Drama
Actress Golden Brooks has been added to the cast of the upcoming TNT drama One Day She’ll Darken. The former Girlfriends co-star joins a stellar line-up that already includes actors Chris Pine (Wonder Woman), Dylan Smith (Into the Badlands), Jay Paulson (Mad Men), and Justin Cromwell (Training Day).
The six-episode event series tells the story of Fauna Hodel, the white daughter of a prominent California Family. She was given away at birth to be raised by a black family and grew up believing she was mixed race. It was only after she began looking into her family background as an adult that she learned of a family secret that linked her to the infamous Black Dahlia murder mystery.
Fauna Hodel’s story was previously chronicled in the unreleased 1991 film Pretty Hattie’s Baby. It starred Alfre Woodard and Charles S. Dutton. You can check out a preview of that film above. In the TNT version Brooks will play the mother who raised Fauna, a role Woodard tackled in the original.
