Brittany Snow is joining the cast of Fox’s comedy pilot To My Future Assistant.
The Pitch Perfect actress has signed onto the ensemble cast, which includes Joe Egender, Melissa Tang and Catherine O’Hara. The show follows assistants at a big New York law firm band together as a family to help each other cope with the obnoxious overbearing bosses who test their sanity on a daily basis. Snow will play Jen, “a super-ambitious young woman who can’t stand being a legal assistant for another day and hopes to snag an associate lawyer position at her firm now that she’s passed the bar.”
The Fox project, written by Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer, is one of two office-assistant comedies in the works; the other is NBC’s Assistance, which tapped Krysten Ritter in the starring role. Snow had her first major primetime role on NBC’s American Dreams and has since had arcs on NBC’s Harry’s Law and FX’s Nip/Tuck.
