The occasional actress will play a classic Hollywood femme fatale in a throwback to “the glory days of L.A. film noir,” explains exec producer Carol Mendelsohn. “Her character is absolutely unlike what she seems. Prepare to be tantalized and tormented.”

Mendelsohn adds that the case “will get personal” for Eric Szmanda’s Sanders—which makes sense since Szmanda and Von Teese are pals off screen.

Von Teese’s episode is tentatively scheduled to air in January.
