Brittany Snow will play an ambitious law-school grad looking to raise the bar — now that she’s passed it — in Fox’s comedy pilot To My Future Assistant, TVLine has learned.
The potential series is based on a blog and upcoming book of the same name by Lydia Whitlock. It follows the grumbling, oppressed assistants at a tony New York city law firm, and it is written by Sherry Bilsing-Graham (Friends) and Ellen Kreamer (The New Adventures of Old Christine), with Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz also serving as EPs.
Snow’s character Jen hopes to snag an associate lawyer position at her firm, thus freeing her from the tedium of being a legal assistant.
The project’s cast also includes Catherine O’Hara (Best in Show) as a powerful lawyer/not-so-nice person.
The actress followed her American Dreams run with roles in Nip/Tuck, Harry’s Law and Gossip Girl and parts in feature films. She also played a love interest for Ben & Kate‘s Tommy before Fox pulled the comedy from its schedule in January.
