Sarah Chalke to star in ABC pilot
Greg Malins, Arianna Huffington exec producing 'Freshmen'
"Scrubs" star Sarah Chalke is returning to ABC with another comedy project.
Chalke has been tapped to star in the network's multicamera pilot "Freshmen," from "How I Met Your Mother" exec producer Greg Malins and Arianna Huffington.
The multicamera "Freshmen," from 20th TV, centers on the friendship of three freshmen members of Congress -- two men and a woman -- who live together in D.C.
Chalke will play the woman, Jane, a beautiful, smart and funny freshman Congresswoman who was the VP at a multi-billion dollar company when she was just 28, and who won her district with the largest margin of any candidate since 1977. However, when it comes to men, Jane is a disaster waiting to happen.
Malins wrote the script and is exec producing with Huffington.
Chalke, who played Dr. Elliot Reid on "Scrubs" for eight years, reprised the character in several episodes of the show this season.
She also did a memorable arc on CBS' comedy "How I Met Your Mother," working with Malins and 20th TV.
