Majors will play Ken Richards, a former flame of Sue Ellen (portrayed by Linda Gray) who comes back into her life due to business matters.

Majors is best known as the star of "The Six Million Dollar Man," which ran on ABC from 1974 to 1978 and followed the exploits of former astronaut Steve Austin, who's given superpowers via bionic implants after suffering injuries in a crash.  (He enjoyed a second wave of popularity as stuntman/bounty hunter Colt Seavers in the '80s series "The Fall Guy.")
