Mandy Moore joins ABC's 'Pulling'

In news that should make fellow TV Rage writer Adam Langton happy, Mandy Moore is set to take another stab at a comedy series.

Deadline reports Moore has been cast in the lead for ABC's adaptation of the 2006 UK comedy "Pulling." The series revolves around three female friends living their lives the way they want, even if society tells them they should have it all figured out by this point.

Moore will portray Louise, one of the three female leads, described as optimistic and eager to find a husband, but her experiences and tactics in the dating scene tends to backfire. The adaptation of the British series is written by "Bad Teacher" scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.

ABC has long had their eye on Moore, as this will be the actress' third pilot there in the last two development seasons. Back in October 2011 it was announced that the network had signed her to "Us and Them," and the following year in "Miss Most Likely," neither of which made it past the pilot stage. Hopefully the third time's a charm, since Moore has shown to be a decent comedic actress in features and a memorable guest runs on NBC's "Scrubs" and CBS' "How I Met Your Mother."
