Lilla Crawford (Into the Woods) is set as a lead in ABC’s untitled single-camera comedy pilot from My Name Is Earl executive producer Bobby Bowman, Condé Nast Entertainment, 3 Arts Entertainment and ABC Studios. In addition, Will Kindrachuk (School of Rock) has been cast in a series regular role.

Written by Bowman and directed by Ian Fitzgibbon, the Untitled Bobby Bowman Project is inspired by Bowman’s childhood growing up with a father with mental illness. The uplifting comedy features a dysfunctional family that perseveres despite their differences and finds happiness in unexpected places.


Crawford will play Lola, the intelligent middle daughter who tries to navigate her quirky family and starting high school with a sense of humor. While she loves her family, she yearns to establish her identity as a teenager in a new town without her eccentric father’s shadow. Kindrachuk is Ted, Lola’s younger brother.

Crawford starred opposite Johnny Depp as Little Red Riding Hood in Disney’s Into the Woods. She’s also known for voicing the main character in Nick Jr’s animated series Sunny Day, and playing the title role in Annie on Broadway. She’ll next be seen in Netflix’s upcoming sketch comedy series The Who Was? Show. Crawford is repped by Buchwald, Terrific Talent, and Schreck Rose.

Kindrachuk played Asher on School of Rock and most recently guest-starred on Good Girls. He’s repped by Industry Entertainment.
