Stage veterans Jill Clayburgh and Donald Sutherland will join Peter Krause in the Craig Wright-penned ABC drama pilot "Dirty Sexy Money," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Peter Horton will direct the show for ABC-TV and Berlanti Television. Greg Berlanti, Melissa Berman, Bryan Singer and Craig Wright serve as executive producers.

In "Dirty Sexy Money," Krause plays an idealistic lawyer who must represent the wealthy and colorful New York Darling family (led by Sutherland and Clayburgh as patriarch and matriarch).

Clayburgh ("Running With Scissors") returned to the stage recently with a healthy roster of roles in Broadway's A Naked Girl on the Appian Way and Barefoot in the Park as well as Off-Broadway's The Busy World is Hushed and The Clean House. Sutherland — a recent ABC player on "Commander in Chief" — has played Off-Broadway in Jon Robin Baitz's Ten Unknowns and on Broadway in Lolita. Krause — of TV's "Six Feet Under" and "Sports Night" fame — made his Broadway debut in After the Fall.

Also featured in the cast of "Dirty Sexy Money" will be Glenn Fitzgerald, Natalie Zea, Samaire Armstrong, Seth Gabel, William Baldwin and Zoe McLellan.

Playwright Wright's stage works include Recent Tragic Events, Orange Flower Water, Melissa Arctic, The Pavilion, Grace, Lady and Main Street. He has previously written for TV's "Lost," "Six Feet Under" and the current Jon Robin Baitz-created ABC show "Brothers & Sisters."
