Jennie Garth Is CBS' 'Girl'!
Post by: Sal
The CBS comedy pilot "My Best Friend's Girl" has found the "girl" of its title.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennie Garth has been tapped to lead the pilot, which comes from Sony Picture TV.
The comedy focuses on two best friends who own a bike shop together. Hilarity ensues, though, when one of the friends (Tim Peper) begins dating his buddy's (Josh Cooke) ex-wife (Garth).
In addition, Eric Ladin has been cast as the worst salesman at the bike shop.
Garth showed off her comedy chops on The WB's long-running "What I Like About You" and her hoofing abilities in a long run on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars." In our hearts, though, she'll still always be Kelly Taylor from "Beverly Hills, 90210."
Ladin's credits include episodes of "The Unit," "Shark" and "Veronica Mars," plus the upcoming HBO miniseries "Generation Kill."
