Image Credit: Christopher Smith/PR PhotosEW has exclusively learned that Groundhog Day star Andie MacDowell has been cast as the character Grey in ABC Family’s drama pilot What Would Jane Do. The one-hour scripted drama follows Jane (to be played by The Lake‘s Erica Dasher), a 16-year-old who goes to work for a cutting edge fashion company after the people there mistake her for an adult. MacDowell’s Grey is described as “the hard-nosed, tough-as-nails boss that Jane goes to work for.”

In a release, ABC Family described the show as such: “Jane soon finds herself juggling life as a regular teenager in high school and as an assistant to a high-powered executive in the cutthroat world of fashion … all while trying to keep her true identity a secret.” Should like a cross between Disney’s Hannah Montana and Nickelodeon’s True Jackson, VP — now, with a diva-licious Andie MacDowell at the helm.
