The Sopranos alumna Jamie Lynn Sigler will co-star opposite Kevin Connolly, Vanessa Williams, and James Caan in Fox’s multi-camera/hybrid pilot Fantasy Life, written by Tim McAuliffe based on the memoir by one of U.S.’ top fantasy experts, ESPN’s Matthew Berry. When hard-working Mitch (Connolly) lands his ultimate dream job hosting a fantasy football show, he’s forced to navigate office politics while becoming the star he never thought he could be. Sigler will play Abby, a strong, confident, attractive, smart, sports analyst on Mitch’s Fantasy Football league show. Caan plays an ex-legendary football player/coach who also is working on the show. Williams plays Mitch’s new boss.
In addition to starring, Connolly is executive producing Fantasy Life alongside McAuliffe and 3 Arts’ Michael Rotenberg, Jonathan Berry, Greg Walter and Troy Zien.
On the comedy side, Sigler, repped by Paradigm and John Carrabino Management, co-starred in NBC’s Guys with Kids.
