‘Downton Abbey’ Actress Michelle Dockery to Star in TNT Drama ‘Good Behavior’

'Downton Abbey' Actress Michelle Dockery to Star in TNT Drama 'Good Behavior'

Now that “Downton Abbey” has announced that its upcoming sixth season will be its last, Michelle Dockery is seeking new leading roles. 

The erstwhile Mary Crawley has landed a TNT drama called “Good Behavior,” which has received a pilot order from the network. Based on the Letty Dobesh novels by Blake Crouch, the series will feature the patrician actress going against type by playing a con artist newly released from prison “whose life is always one wrong turn and bad decision from implosions — just how she likes it.” When Dockery’s Letty overhears a plot between a hitman and a client to kill the latter’s wife, she steps in to foil the hired gun — then entangles herself in a relationship with him. 

Season 6 of “Downton Abbey” will debut early next year and will be followed by its annual Christmas special.
