TVLine Items: Shay Mitchell's Comedy Gig, Vice Principals Reunion and More

Shay Mitchell Dollface

Pretty Little Liars vet Shay Mitchell is going for laughs: The actress has joined Hulu’s forthcoming comedy series Dollface, starring Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls) and Brenda Song (The Suite Life on Deck), our sister site Deadline reports. Mitchell replaces Lex Scott Davis (Training Day), who was originally cast in the role of free spirit and charming hedonist Stella Cole.

The show follows a young woman (Dennings) who, after being dumped by her longtime boyfriend, must deal with her own imagination in order to literally and metaphorically re-enter the world of women and rekindle the female friendships she left behind. Mitchell’s character is the college best friend of Song’s alter ego Madison.

Mitchell most recently wrapped an arc on Season 1 of the Lifetime-turned-Netflix drama YOU.
