Karen Graci is co-writer on the series. BLUE is executive-produced by Jon Avnet (“Black Swan,” “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “Risky Business”), Garcia and Jake Avnet.
In these new episodes, BLUE (Stiles) finds herself getting a little too close to a client (guest star Eric Stoltz, “Mask,” “Fort McCoy”).

The fan-favorite series will also feature Stiles’ real-life sister, Jane O’Hara (“Law & Order”), who makes her WIGS debut as Blue’s sister, a free-spirited woman who crashes at Blue’s apartment with her lover (Alexz Johnson, “Instant Star”). Also this season, a man (James Morrison, “Revenge,” “24”) from Blue’s past returns and has some unexpected news for her. Other new cast members include Daren Kagasoff (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager”) and Alexz Johnson (“Instant Star”), as well as Laura Spencer (“The Lizzie Bennet Diaries”), who cameos as her WIGS character, “Vanessa,” from JAN and VANESSA & JAN.
