Actress Judy Greer — who costarred in the Oscar-nominated movie The Descendants and does voice-over work for FX’s Archer — will star in and executive produce a comedy pilot for ABC called American Judy.

The single-camera comedy from writing partners Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont (Made of Honor, Leap Year) is about a “cosmopolitan woman gets married and becomes a fish out of water in the suburbs.” She juggles step-kids, a mother-in-law, and the ex-wife of her husband, who also serves as the town sheriff.

Greer last headlined a comedy for ABC called Miss Guided in 2008. Her TV credits are extensive and include roles in Two and a Half Men, Mad Love, and Family Guy.
