Mandy Moore has another chance to star in a CBS pilot!
Last season Moore faced disappointment when the CBS show ‘The Advocates’ did not get picked up for the 2013-14 schedule; however, she has a new television opportunity.
According to Deadline, Moore is set as the female lead in CBS’ single-camera pilot ‘Good Session.’ The comedy, written by John Hamburg and Matt Miller and directed by Hamburg, will center around a happy couple, Lindsay (Moore) and Joel (‘Psych’ alum James Roday).
Although content with their marriage, the couple decides to involve a therapist (Tracey Ullman) to help them decide if they should have a baby. They quickly uncover that they have a lot more to discuss than just a child.
Lindsay is described as an ambitious and “hyper-focused” business executive who, despite her devotion to her husband, is not ready to trade her successful career for motherhood. Her husband Joel is a devoted middle-school guidance counselor who believes the time is “right now” to start a family with his business savvy wife. Their conflicts make the perfect recipe for therapy.
As for Moore, this is not her first time on the small screen. Her credits include ‘Entourage’ playing herself, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and the children’s show ‘Sheriff Callie’s Wild West.’ Most recently, she contributed her voice to FOX’s ‘High School USA!’
A pop-princess of all trades, Moore also has numerous film credits, and they include teen drama ‘A Walk to Remember,’ ‘The Princess Diaries,’ ‘How to Deal,’ ‘Saved!’ and ‘Hotel Noir.’
