Megalyn Echikunwoke has joined the cast of upcoming CBS series Made in Jersey.

The legal drama stars Janet Montgomery (Human Target) as a working-class Jersey girl who must compete with snobbish colleagues at a New York law firm.

90210 actress Echikunwoke will play Riley, a second-year associate at the firm who comes from a rich background, TVLine reports.

The 29-year-old star recently played a recurring role on Showtime's House of Lies and is currently shooting film sequel A Good Day to Die Hard opposite Bruce Willis.

She was also cast in NBC sci-fi pilot Beautiful People, but the project was ultimately not picked up to series.

Ringer star Kristoffer Polaha has also been cast on Made in Jersey, while The Wire actor Pablo Schreiber - who appeared in the show's pilot - will not return as a series regular.

Made in Jersey premieres on Friday, September 28 at 9/8c on CBS.
