Vanessa Lachey is the third and final First wife.
The actress, whose TV credits include sitcoms Dad and Truth Be Told, has signed on to star in TV Land’s First Wives Club remake opposite fellow co-leads Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) and Megan Hilty (Smash), TVLine has learned.
The small screen reboot of the 1996 film, which starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn, is set in modern day San Francisco. Much like the movie, the story follows three friends and former ’90s classmates who reconnect after one of their college pals dies in a freak accident. When they discover that they are all at a romantic crossroads, they band together to tackle divorce, relationships and life’s other annoying challenges.
Lachey will play Sasha, a driven and successful chef in San Francisco who has it all — a hot restaurant and a great girlfriend who she plans to marry. But when she reconnects with her old friends after the death of their college roommate, she realizes she may not be as ready to settle down as she thought.
Rebecca Addelman (New Girl) penned the script and will executive-produce alongside Jenny Bicks (Sex and the City).
