Kelly Preston is set as the lead in ABC’s comedy pilot Keep Kalm And Karey On, from writer/executive producer Andrea Abbate, 20th Century Fox TV and 21 Laps/Adelstein. The project centers on Karey (Preston), the clean-nosed black sheep in a family of petty thieves, drug addicts, and narcissists. When her brother is sent to prison, she decides to raise his kids along with her adopted black son and give them the normal lives they deserve. Preston joins previously cast Majandra Delfino and Jane Seymour, who is only 11 years older than Preston but plays her mom. This is a rare series gig for CAA-repped Preston who has focused on features. She previously did an arc on Medium.
