ABC Family is adding another one-hour scripted drama to their lineup.
It was announced today that the network has picked up the drama "Jane By Design," starring Andie MacDowell and newcomer Erica Dasher.
"Jane By Design" (formerly "What Would Jane Do"), a light-hearted drama, follows Jane, a teenager who lands a job at a hip retail company when they mistake her for an adult. Jane soon finds herself juggling life both as a regular high school student 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.
"Jane By Design" stars Erica Dasher ("The Lake") as Jane Quimby, Nicholas Roux ("Lemonade Mouth") as Billy Nutter, Rowly Dennis ("Desperate Housewives") as Jeremy Jones, India De Beaufort ("One Tree Hill") as India Jordain, Meagan Tandy ("10 Things I Hate About You") as Lulu Pope, Matthew Atkinson ("CSI") as Nick Fadden, and featuring Andie MacDowell ("Four Weddings and a Funeral") as Gray Chandler Murray – Jane's steely boss whose constant demands keep her on her toes.
"Jane By Design" is set to premiere in early 2012.
We caught up with Nick at the premiere of "Lemonade Mouth" yesterday. Stay tuned for that interview!
