“Gossip Girl” alum will play the buttoned down sister of Maggie Lawson’s character
Michelle Trachtenberg has booked a new gig: the “Gossip Girl” alum has been cast in the upcoming comedy pilot “Save the Date” from “That ’70s Show” duo Jackie and Jeff Filgo.
Trachtenberg joins “Psych” actress Maggie Lawson, who was previously cast.
The pilot revolves around newly single Katie (Lawson), who drunkenly books a wedding venue and is now faced with the task of meeting the right man in time.
Trachtenberg will play Katie’s sister Hillary. Described as buttoned down, no-nonsense, with a dry sense of humor, Hillary is happily living with her boyfriend of four years, Roger. The pair share their apartment with Katie.
The pilot has also cast Tom Bennett in the role of Roger, and Julie White, who’ll play Katie and Hillary’s mother Connie.
ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios are producing.
