British actor Colin Salmon has joined the cast of Bravo‘s hourlong pilot Rita, which is written by Krista Vernoff and will be directed by Miguel Arteta.

The family drama follows Rita (to be played by Anna Gunn), described an acerbic, outspoken private-school teacher who struggles to raise her 3 teen children while dealing with the bureaucracy and overprotective parents at her school.

Salmon, who can currently be seen in a recurring role on the CW’s The Arrow, will play a character named Colin Paige, who's described as an aristocratic, emotionally-guarded British teacher who is the head of the history department at the school.

    He's been kidnapped on "Arrow", so this may mean we won't see his character on the show again. So Bravo has made enough coins off of exploitation to start creating original dramatic programming?

    I've really been baffled by his absence and hoping for his return. Wonder if he'll be more prominent on this new show...
