Alyssa Milano has been cast in The CW’s drama pilot about a lawyer-turned-beauty pageant coach.

Titled Insatiable, the pilot centers on Bob (Dallas Roberts), a “disgraced, dissatisfied civil lawyer” who becomes a beauty pageant coach, according to the show’s logline. Charmed and Mistresses alumna Milano will play Bob’s wife, Coralee, a social climber — a recurring role if Insatiable is picked up to series. Debby Ryan will play Patty, Bob’s “vengeful, bullied” teenage client.

“So excited about sharing this news I’m spitting!” Milano wrote on Twitter along with the announcement.

Milano is slated to appear in Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later later this year. Deadline first reported her casting.
