Becki Newton was much sought-after this pilot season despite/because of her Love Bites dramedy getting sidelined before having a chance to leave the starting gate. CBS has ended up landing the actress for untitled multi-camera pilot about a blue-collar father who lives under the same roof with his recently widowed mother, his unmarried daughter, and her 12-year-old son. Newton will play the grown-up daughter on the show. That ’70s Show team Jackie and Jeff Filgo will write and produce.
