Emmy winner Alfre Woodard will star opposite Christian Slater in NBC's new drama series My Own Worst Enemy. She joins a cast that includes Mike O'Malley, Yara Martinez and Saffron Burrows.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series centers on Henry (Slater), a mild-mannered suburban dad whose alter ego, Edward, is a suave spy.

Woodard will play Mavis Heller, Edward's tough and astute boss at Janus HQ. She also has an alter ego, Helen, who gets to interact with Henry.

The project, created by Jason Smilovic, was picked up straight to series and is slated to air in the fall at Mondays 10 p.m.
