Variety.com reports that the HBO Max comedy pilot “Minx” is rounding out its cast.
Idara Victor, Oscar Montoya, Jessica Lowe, Lennon Parham, and Michael Angarano have all been cast in series regular roles, with Jake Johnson attached to guest star. The group joins previously announced series lead Ophelia Lovebond.
“Minx” is set in 1970s Los Angeles and centers around earnest young feminist Joyce (Lovebond) who joins forces with a low-rent publisher to create the first erotic magazine for women.
Victor, whose past credits include “Shameless” and “Turn,” will play Tina, the publisher’s sardonic secretary.

Parham will play Shelly, a conventional housewife starting to question her life choices. Parham is known for roles in “Bless This Mess,” “Playing House,” and “Veep.”
