Fox has found half of its crazy couple.

Pan Am's Kelli Garner has landed the starring role in the Fox comedy pilot Two Wrongs, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The single-camera comedy revolves around two star-crossed lovers, Nick and Jenny, who must contend with Nick's family's strong dislike of Jenny, which is not helped by the fact that Jenny left Nick at the altar seven years ago.

Garner will play Jenny, the woman who left him at the altar. When the duo have a chance meeting, they realize they're still very much in love. Jenny is described as being a scattered, delightfully impulsive force of nature -- a stark contrast to Nick.

Girl Most Likely's Michelle Morgan will pen the 20th Television pilot and executive produce alongside Chernin Entertainment's Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Aaron Kaplan and Sean Perrone. David Katzenberg will direct. Nicholas Wright co-stars as Daniel, Zach's brother.
