Britt Robertson Casual

TVLine Items: Britt Robertson on Casual, Oprah's TV Return and More

Hulu is facilitating a rather unexpected reunion — Life Unexpected, that is.

Britt Robertson — who starred on The CW’s short-lived drama — will recur on Casual, which is exec-produced by Life Unexpected creator Liz Tigelaar.

According to THR, Robertson will appear in Season 2 as Fallon, the smart and sarcastic assistant to Vincent Kartheiser’s venture capitalist Jordan.

Since Life Unexpected, Robertson’s TV credits have included Under the Dome and Secret Circle.

  2. Ceylan says:

    I think you forgot to add the Secret Circle after ‘who starred on The CW’s short-lived drama’.

    • Allie says:

      They were referring the previous sentence, which referenced Life Unexpected, the short-lived show Robertson starred in on CW before it was canceled. I believe that was a year or two before Secret Circle.

    Is Abc’s Dirty dancing remake going to be a tv movie remake or a live version of it? I’m so confused and the cast is just terrible. I have no faith in Abigal Breslin
