Mandy Moore to star in sitcom
After numerous guest appearances on TV shows, Mandy Moore seems poised to make a more permanent move to the small-screen.
The actress has just signed on to star in the single-camera ABC sitcom, Us and Them, her publicist confirmed Wednesday.
ABC has ordered a put-pilot of the family comedy, which will be told through the lens of newlyweds Annie (Moore) and Ben, and will explore inherent conflict between the families we grown up in and the families we make.
Night at the Museum’s Shawn Levy is set to direct, while Wedding Crashers co-writer Bob Fischer is penning the project. Moore’s manager, Jon LeShay — who was the music supervisor on three of her films, including A Walk To Remember, Saved, and How To Deal — will produce. Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements will executive produce along with Fisher and Levy.
Though this is Moore’s first starring role on TV, she’s certainly no stranger to the medium. The actress/singer was a guest-star on Grey’s Anatomy, How I Met Your Mother, and Entourage (where she played herself). She’s also the voice of Mara on the animated series, TRON: Uprising.
