"This is a fabulously written piece exploring family dynamics and I feel extraordinarily grateful to have been cast in Gold Digger and to be working with Vanessa and Marnie," Ormand said in a statement.

No other casting has been announced yet.

"I'm thrilled to have the hugely talented Julia Ormond bringing our heroine to life. I couldn't be happier to be working with the BBC and Mainstreet on a drama that puts an older woman unequivocally at the heart of the action," Dickens said.

Ormond, 55, was most recently seen in the Starz/Amazon miniseries Howards End. Her other credits include Incorporated, Mad Men and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
