Pilot Intel: Sarah Chalke joins ABC's 'Freshman'

Posted on

Sources confirm that Sarah Chalke has landed the female lead in the ABC comedy pilot Freshman.

The Scrubs vet will play Jane, a smart and funny freshman congresswoman who excels at pretty much everything except (drumroll… ) relationships!

Exec produced by Arianna Huffington and How I Met Your Mother‘s Greg Malins, Freshman centers on three rookie politicians who live together in Washington D.C.

Still to be cast: Chalke’s two male co-stars.
