Chad Lowe joins ABC Family series
Actor cast in 'Liars'; Gina Torres added to network's 'Huge'
Two upcoming ABC Family drama series have added new regulars: Chad Lowe has joined "Pretty Little Liars" and Gina Torres has come aboard "Huge."
In pilot castings, Greg Germann and Damon Gupton round out Fox's comedy "Strange Brew," Riki Lindhome has boarded CBS' comedy "Hitched," and Robbie Jones and Heather Hemmens have been added to the CW's "Hellcats."
"Liars," based on Alloy's series of novels, revolves around four teen girls -- Aria (Lucy Hale), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Hanna (Ashley Benson) -- who begin to receive mysterious messages, seemingly from a girlfriend who disappeared three years earlier.
In a recasting, Lowe will play Aria's father. He replaces Alexis Denisof, who played the role in the pilot.
On "Huge," set at a weight-loss camp for teens, Torres will play Dr. Dorothy Rand.
"Brew" revolves around a family that owns a small but successful regional brewery struggling with working and living together. Gupton will play the brewmaster; Germann will play a rival brewer.
On "Hitched" -- about a newlywed couple (Jack Carpenter, Kristin Kreuk), their family and friends -- Lindhome, repped by Gersh and Principato Young, will play the bride's best friend.
On "Hellcats," which revolves around a college cheering squad, Jones, repped by Gersh and Untitled, will play the male lead, a cheerleading "base" who falls for the new girl (Aly Michalka). Hemmens will play a cheerleader sidelined with a wrist injury.
