Weeks/McKay ABC Comedy Pilot Casts Tattiawna Jones As the Female Lead

Tattiawna Jones ABC Pilot

Flashpoint alumna Tattiawna Jones has landed the female lead opposite Andy Ridings in ABC’s untitled Weeks/Mackay comedy pilot.

Written by The Mindy Project co-star Ed Weeks & Hannah Mackay and directed by Leslye Headland, the single-camera project ABC Logocenters on lesbian Hilda (Jones) and her best friend Randall (Ridings), a neurotic straight guy, as they navigate their dysfunctional, co-dependent friendship and the world of dating. Jones’s Hilda is an intelligent and seemingly confident lesbian lothario with a dry sense of humor – that she uses to hide her underlying fear of growing up, settling down and becoming conventional.

Weeks and Mackay co-executive produce. Andrew Reich, who supervised the writers, executive produces.

Canadian actress Jones, repped by APA and Carrier Talent Management, also recently nabbed a recurring role on the upcoming USA drama series Eyewitness.
