Lindsey Morgan will play a woman that dreams big in the Pixl television movie, “Casa Vita,” TheWrap has learned exclusively.
“The 100” actress will star in the lead role of Ariana Vita in the TV movie opposite ABC Family’s “Baby Daddy” star Jean Luc Bilodeau.
Described as a Latina, who’s intelligent and gorgeous, Arianna is hardworking with a passion for food. She works at her family’s restaurant and frequently butts heads with her stubborn father.
“Casa Vita” follows a young man (Bilodeau) living on an Iowa farm, who is determined to pursue his dream of becoming a professional baseball player and becomes elated when he is invited to a major league tryout camp in Los Angeles. He’ll end up meeting an equally impassioned young woman (Morgan) with a desire to pursue her dream of having her own restaurant. They’ll learn that it’s not always a bad thing when dreams take a bit of a detour.
Written by Michael Stiles and Nathan Atkins and directed by Ernie Barbarash, the movie will be produced by Larry Livens, and will air on PixL.
Morgan currently plays the series regular role of Raven Reyes on The CW’s “The 100.” She has also starred on “General Hospital.” Additionally, she has appeared on TNT’s “Franklin & Bash” and ABC’s “Happy Endings,” among other shows.
