EXCLUSIVE: Kelly Brook has been tapped as one of the leads in NBC‘s multi-camera pilot One Big Happy, marking the first U.S. series regular role for the popular British actress/TV personality. Written by Liz Feldman and directed by Scott Ellis, One Big Happy revolves around two platonic friends since childhood — a lesbian, Lizzy (Elisha Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Nick Zano) — who have been living together and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time. They finally get pregnant, just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life, pretty young British woman Prudence (Brook). Kind of a sexy Mary Poppins, Prudence is a free spirit with a refreshingly skewed perspective that Luke finds wholly enchanting. About to be deported, Prudence marries Luke in a whirlwind and soon becomes a part of an unusual family unit. Warner Bros TV produces with Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production. In the U.S., Brook had a recurring role on Smallville. She is with Untitled, Cole Kitchenn (U.K.), ROAR Global (U.K.), ICM Partners and Bloom Hergott.
