Florence Pugh has been cast as the female lead on Fox pilot “Studio City.”
The U.K. native makes her U.S. television debut as rising singer/songwriter Cat, whose family life has been a celebration of dysfunction. Her mother is an unstable alcoholic and her father (
Eric McCormack) is a drug-dealing musician. Cat is a survivor, though, and somehow has managed to keep her sense of humor, her romanticism and her dreams alive despite it all.
