Alexandra Krosney (Last Man Standing) has been cast as the lead in Self Promotion, MTV’s dark comedy pilot that will be directed by Zach Braff. Also cast in bloomthe project is Nichole Bloom (Shameless).

Self Promotion centers on overworked assistant Katie Preston (Krosney) who discovers that her dragon lady boss is missing (or worse). Things get messy fast, with Katie, believing she’ll be the prime suspect, covering up the crime scene. She starts calling the shots in her boss’s “absence,” and goes full CSI to find out what actually happened and exonerate herself. Success at the office is hectic and maybe even dangerous in this darkly comedic twist on climbing the corporate ladder.

Bloom, repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Patino Management, will play Katie’s law student roommate Winter, an odd mix of a little bit naughty librarian and a little bit stoner. She immediately tries to strategize a plan for Katie who is looking like the prime suspect in what could be a murder case. Krosney is with Underground and APA.
