ABC Family has cast Lilah Richcreek as the female lead in its multi-camera comedy pilot Gorgeous Morons, from ABC Signature. The project, co-created by Lee Eisenberg, Gene Stupnitsky and Danny Chun and written by Chun, focuses on Madison and AJ, two stunningly handsome but ridiculously simple brothers – one is a model, the other a personal trainer – who find their lives rocked by their brainy new roommate, American literature Ph.D. student Jane (Richcreek) whose looks are, by their standards, in desperate need of help.
The highly intelligent and sardonic Jane values substance over trivial things like looks and popularity. Finding herself in desperate need of a place to live that’s affordable and near campus, Jane moves in with Madison and AJ. She surprisingly bonds with AJ over his forbidden love of carbs, but fiercely butts heads with Madison who is intimidated by her intellect and disgusted by her wide array of sweatpants. When her professor crush cuts her name from their co-authored paper, she’s pleasantly surprised that the brothers stand up to him on her behalf.
ABC Family and ABC Studios/ABC Signature previously cast Richcreek in another comedy pilot, Work Mom. She is repped by APA, Schumacher Management, and Stone, Meyer, Genow, Smelkinson & Binder.
