EXCLUSIVE: Young actress Sophia Schloss has landed the title role in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot Isabel. Inspired by the French-Canadian series Le Monde De Charlotte, Isabel centers on an otherwise normal, angry middle-class family that wrestles with the challenges of everyday life while raising a daughter (Schloss) who has magical qualities. Schloss has experience acting in an NBC pilot with magical elements — she guest starred in the pilot for the network’s freshman drama series Grimm. Isabel was written by Howard Busgang and Tom Nursall, with Todd Holland set to direct. Aaron Kaplan, Jocelyn Deschenes, Busgang and Nursall, Holland and Karey Burke are executive producing.
