Malcolm Barrett (Better Off Ted) has been cast in Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot Rebounding. The project, written by Joe Port and Joe Wiseman and directed by Jason Winer, is an uplifting comedy about a man recovering from the death of his fiancé with the help of the idiots on his pickup basketball team, two of them played by Barrett, repped by Gersh and Management 360, and Hayes MacArthur. Port and Wiseman are executive producing Rebounding with Steve Levitan.
Toni Trucks (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2) will co-star in the CBS drama pilot Baby Big Shot. The project, from Kevin Falls, Sony TV and Julia Franz’s Fanfare, is a legal drama centered on Martina, a working-class woman who uses her street smarts to compete with her more polished colleagues at a top New York law firm. Trucks, repped by Greene & Associates and Rugolo Entertainment, will play Cindi, Martina’s edgy secretary & comradette-in-arms.
Aubrey Dollar has joined NBC’s untitled Hilary Winston single-camera pilot, also from Sony TV and Fanfare. It centers on Agnes, a shy, focused woman who, after being dumped by her fiance, leans on her co-workers to help her come out of her shell and plot her revenge. Gersh-repped Dollar will play one of them, a chemist on Agnes’ team.
