Midnight in Paris co-star Mimi Kennedy has boarded ABC's Judy Greer comedy pilot.

In the project from Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont, Greer stars as a cosmopolitan woman who gets married and becomes a fish-out-of-water in the suburbs having to juggle her step-kids, mother-in-law and the ex-wife of her husband, who also happens to be the town sheriff.

Kennedy will play Greer's character's mother-in-law in the ABC Studios project.

Kennedy, repped by Justice & Ponder, Wagner Talent and Behr & Abramson, can be seen in theaters in Midnight in Paris, which like Greer's The Descendants is among the nominees for a best picture Academy Award this year.

Kennedy's credits include episodes of Love Bites, Criminal Minds and No Ordinary Family. She's perhaps best known from her small-screen role on Dharma & Greg
