Californication's Madeline Zima has also been cast in the period drama written by KJ Steinberg and executive produced by Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, reports Deadline.

Gilded Lilys will be set in New York City in 1895, and has been described as an "epic love story" after the first luxury hotel opens in the city.

Bolger will play the rebellious Violet Lily, whose family owns the hotel. Danner will star as Violet's grandmother Caroline, the family's rich widow. Meanwhile, Zima will play Violet's personal maid.

Blythe Danner revealed last year that she would be interested in appearing in Glee alongside her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow.

Sarah Bolger joined the cast of Fox pilot Locke and Key in late 2010. Enjoy the latest TV Box Sets with Sky Watch now
