Pilot Scoop: ABC Orders Mandy Moore Comedy

ABC has ordered a half-hour single camera comedy pilot starring Mandy Moore.

The untitled project centers on newlyweds Annie (Mandy Moore) and Ben, who open a hip, new restaurant in Annie’s hometown bringing her closer to her needy and high maintenance family.

    James Wolk will play her husband, right?

  2. SonR says:

    love mandy moore, but this sounds like all her worst movies rolled into one show

  3. Danielle says:

    Kinda can’t wait. Like her acting most of the time. But I like her in general!

  4. Mark says:

    She is actually very funny. I loved her in Scrubs.

  5. Emily says:

    Sounds interesting and Mandy is a good actress
    And ABC? Having her on contract gives you the perfect opportunity to have her stop by Once Upon a Time as Rapunzel. Just saying

    Best. comment. ever.

  7. Jon says:

    Hahaha!! Thank you for this comment, this needs to happen asap!

  8. Rolfe says:

    I love Mandy Moore. Hope to see this make series.

  9. Judy says:

    Having read the script (prior to the re-write,) Adam Brody would be absolutely perfect casting as Moore’s character’s husband, Ben.

  10. Mikaela says:

    Zachary Levi’s not busy anymore!

  11. localboy says:

    Yes! @Mikaela
    Make this happen!

  12. Liam says:

    There could be a horse called maximus too!

  13. Kristy says:

    Love Mandy Moore! I think a romantic sitcom would be the perfect fit for her. Hope this one works out.

    Wow what another exciting amazing original TV Series. I can’t wait to see it, Not. If you want to make a TV Pilot just filled in the blank:
    Newlyweds _____,Married Couple ________,Parents_______, Children and Parents ____________,Divorced Couple________________,________ move back to Hometown, etc., etc.
    The beauty is we’re suppose to get excited about this. They keep churning out recycled losers.

    She’s likeable enough.. but she just plays the same character in every movie, and will be the same character in this. The quirky, talkative, sexy/cute girl role gets old fast though..

    • RLS says:

      She has played exactly one interesting role onscreen: Hilary Faye in Saved. She could’ve followed that up with more edgy stuff, but she did horrible rom com after horrible rom com….

  16. Julie says:

    If her character’s name would have been Sadie then I would have said that this is some sort of a sequle to Liscense to Wed (John Krasinski’s character’s name was Ben in that movie…)…. Sorry I love Krasinski!
    I’m curious though about this show… since I adore Mandy but it’s never really been about her comedy styles. But either way can’t wait to see what will happen!
