Monique Coleman and Noel Fisher have booked series regular roles opposite Rebecca Breeds in NBC pilot Miranda’s Rights.
Written/co-executive produced by Katie Lovejoy and executive produced by John Glenn, Miranda’s Rights is a one-hour legal soap about an idealistic group of lawyers who not only work together but live together at their start-up firm.
Coleman will play Emily Ellison, one of the founding partners and attorney at YLG (Young Law Group), described as friendly, warm and even-keeled, the resident peace keeper. Fisher is Jacob Mizrahi, another partner with YLG. Described as no-nonsense, curt, and the eternal straight-man, he does what he has to in order to rein in his rage (even if that means sitting on zafu pillows and striking meditation bowls). In addition to Breeds, they join previously cast Jamie Chung and John Gabriel.
Coleman, best known for her roles in the High School Musical series, can recently be seen in Here We Go Again and Stitchers. She’s repped by Gersh and Generate. Fisher is coming off a series regular role on Showtime’s Shameless as Mickey Milkovich. He can next be seen in Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Fisher is repped by UTA, Industry Entertainment, and attorney Marcy Morris.
