Two of The CW’s prettiest faces are staying put at the network, while another is making a beeline for ABC.
Supernatural and Vampire Diaries star Lauren Cohan has landed the female lead in the CW’s supernatural-themed drama pilot Heavenly. Exiting 90210 teach Ryan Eggold also has been tapped for a major role in the project. Gossip Girl‘s Kevin Zegers, meanwhile, has been cast opposite Jimmy Wolk in ABC’s Georgetown.
Heavenly centers on Lily (Cohan), a dedicated young female attorney, and a former angel, Dashiel Coffee (Ben Aldridge), only recently turned human, who tackle cases at the attorney’s legal aid clinic — she saves clients’ butts while he saves their souls. Eggold will play a pastor whom Dashiel seeks counsels from.
Georgetown centers on Andrew Pierce (Wolk), an effortlessly charming and brilliant Yale graduate and the youngest Presidential speech-writer on record. Zegers will play Monty, a handsome, incredibly wealthy young stockbroker from a well-connected family and an old rival of Andrew’s.
