Brittany Snow has been cast as a lead in Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot To My Future Assistant. Written by Sherry Bilsing-Graham & Ellen Kreamer and directed by Peyton Reed, Assistant revolves around the assistants at a big New York law firm who band together as a family to help each other cope with the obnoxious overbearing bosses who test their sanity on a daily basis. Snow, repped by ICM Partners and attorney PJ Shapiro, will play Jen, a super-ambitious young woman who can’t stand being a legal assistant for another day and hopes to snag an associate lawyer position at her firm now that she’s passed the bar. The actress, who recently recurred on Fox’s Ben & Kate, joins Catherine O’Hara, Joe Egender and Melissa Tang.
Troy Gentile (Hotel For Dogs) has been cast in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot How The Hell Am I Normal, written by Adam Goldberg and to be directed by Seth Gordon. Inspired by Goldberg’s experience, How The Hell is a family comedy set in the ’80s that centers on in-your-face mother Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) and hot-tempered father Murray (Jeff Garlin) who love their three eccentric kids so much, they can’t bear to see them grow up. Gentile, repped by Ellis Talent Group, will play the middle child Barry, described as the lovable slob.
