In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Mare Winningham has taken the last major role on HBO's miniseries Mildred Pierce.

Pierce is Todd Haynes' five-hour miniseries that is based on James M. Cain's noir novel. It stars Kate Winslet as Mildred Pierce Beragon, a wife who leaves her unemployed husband (Brian F. O'Byrne) and gets a job as a waitress while struggling to earn her daughter's (Evan Rachel Wood) love in Los Angeles during the Great Depression.

Winningham is going to play Mildred's friend Ida Corwin.
