ABC will still air a show starring Alyssa Milano. Previously set to star on "Single with Parents" before it was pulled out, Milano is having her show "Romantically Challenged" close to being picked up for 13 episodes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Challenged" is set for midseason 2010 line-up, joining other new TV shows such as "V", "The Deep End" and "Happy Town". The pilot, which was shot in Spring, was actually a subject of consideration for this upcoming Fall season.

"Challenged" is following a 30-something man who is torn in between his needy best friend and new girlfriend. Milano is to take the role of the girlfriend while "Worst Week" actor Kyle Bornheimer is set to be the best friend. Kelly Stables of "Greek" joins the pack as Milano's younger sister. More casting are expected to be announced on later dates.

"Single with Parents" faced a creative differences block in November last year that forced the network to pull the plug for a midseason 2009 premiere. It was supposed to put Milano as the main character named Lou who is trying to juggle her life while dealing with her dysfunctional family.
