A new pilot by ABC Family, the drama comedy is going to put MacDowell in unknowing position when a 16-year-old comes to work at her place.
"Four Weddings and a Funeral" star Andie MacDowell is going to invade the small screen with "What Would Jane Do". The actress signed up for at least three movies that will debut next year, but most of them have been in post-production stage so she is free to star in the ABC Family drama.
"What Would Jane Do" follows a 16-year-old girl who lands a high-profile fashion job, thanks to a slightly clueless hiring manager who somehow fails to realize that she's still a few years shy of being a grown-up. "Jane soon finds herself juggling life as a regular teenager in high school and as an assistant to a high-powered executive in the cutthroat world of fashion," the synopsis says.
According to EW, MacDowell is to play Grey, who is "the hard-nosed, tough-as-nails boss that Jane goes to work for." Playing Jane is Erica Dasher who was last seen in webseries "The Lake". The project, to be directed by Lev J. Spiro, is still trying to find a bitchy co-worker, a hot older man to play Jane's love interest, as well as a psychotic and over-the-top fashion executive.
"What Would Jane Do" is not the only show which pilot is picked up by the network. "The Lying Game" which is based on a book by "Pretty Little Liars" author Sara Shepard is also being developed, along with comedy "The Great State of Georgia", drama about a showgirl "Strut", supernatural series "Nine Lives", drama which pretty much says its all "Switched at Birth" and an untitled Brenda Hampton project.
