ABC Family's 'Work Mom' Adds 'Desperate Housewives' Alum, Series Regular (Exclusive)
Doug Savant has been booked as a guest star on the project from "Bunheads" duo Grant Levy and Dominik Rothbard.
ABC Family is bulking up the cast of Work Mom.
Actress Lilah Richcreek, who guest-starred on Two and a Half Men and 2 Broke Girls, has been added as a new series regular on the comedy pilot from Bunheads' Grant Levy and Dominik Rothbard, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
Additionally, Desperate Housewives alum Doug Savant has been cast as a guest star.
Work Mom follows Heather (Renee Olstead), who finally gets promoted at her digital marketing firm Pow! Marketing and winds up hiring her recently unemployed mother, Eden (Emily Rutherfurd). Brandon Scott also stars.
Richcreek will portray the beautiful and aggressively confident Rihanna. Always up on the latest trends, she has a bitchy streak that hasn't escaped the attention of Pow! Marketing president Thomas Wade. Convinced she should be promoted, but disinclined to actually work hard, Rihanna always has a snarky riposte to Heather's remark and tries to spin every moment in her own favor.
Savant will play Thomas, a widower who operates with a brusque manner and a trademark scowl. Thomas is all business, intimidating and direct, and has raised his son Ashton to take over the company.
Levy and Rothbard will pen the pilot, which was picked up in August.
Richcreek is repped by Sutton, Barth & Vennari and Schumacher Management. Savant is repped by Paradigm and Lieberman-Zerman Management.
