Catherine Zeta-Jones Cast In New ‘Addams Family’ Series


Tim Burton is working on a new Addams Family series. The show will be titled Wednesday and will focus on the family’s teenage girl, Wednesday Addams. While the rest of the family will have a smaller role, it was still important to have the perfect casting. Catherine Zeta-Jones has been cast as Wednesday’s mother, Morticia Addams.

Reportedly, the show will follow Wednesday as she attends Nevermore Academy and works on her psychic abilities. She also must solve a mystery that her parents were involved in 25 years ago. Jenna Ortega is set to play Wednesday.
