'GCB' Alum to Co-Star in ABC's 'Damaged Goods' (Exclusive)
ABC's Damaged Goods has found Anna Camp's sister.
Jennifer Aspen, who starred on the network's GCB, has joined the single-camera comedy project in a co-starring role, Hollywood Reporter has learned.
From Awkward creator Lauren Iungerich, Damaged Goods centers on the sexual politics that have changed between men and women in the post-feminist era. The project follows Nicole (Camp), a smart and successful attorney who is bewildered and betrayed when her boyfriend Tim (Justin Hartley) tells her that he can’t be happy for her or continue to date if she takes the promotion she was offered at the law firm where they both work -- the promotion he expected to get.
Aspen has been cast as Alexis, Nicole's older and outspoken sister. Married with two and a half kids ("one is really small"), Alexis instructs Nicole to choose her dreams over a guy who is threatened by her — especially a guy like Tim, whom Alexis has never liked.
Steve Talley, Ben Lawson and Kellee Stewart co-star in the Warner Bros. Television project, which also counts Declan Lowney as co-executive producer and director on the pilot.
Aspen is repped by Innovative Artists and Luber Roklin. Credits include stints on Two and a Half Men, Private Practice, Franklin & Bash, Glee, Rodney and Party of Five.
