PASADENA, CA - AUGUST 3: Executive Producer Claudia Lonow of the television show "Accidentally On Purpose " lisens during the CBS Network portion of the 2009 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa on August 3, 2009 in Pasadena, California.

The "Accidentally On Purpose" creator has joined the cross-dressing comedy series.

ABC's upcoming comedy has added Accidentally On Purpose's Claudia Lonow as a co-executive producer.

The multicamera project from Warner Bros. TV centers on two out-of-work car salesmen, who dress as women in order to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps. 

Lonow joins writer-producers Andrew Reich and Ted Cohen (Friends, Rules of engagement), who are already aboard the cross-dressing series, which has been slated for midseason. 

Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break) and Ben Koldyke (How I Met Your Mother) lead as the show's two alpha males. The cast is filled out by John Caparulo (Chelsea Lately), Rebecca Mader (Lost) and Rochelle Aytes (Detroit 1-8-7).

Lonow got her start as an actress, playing Diana Fairgate on CBS' late-1970s series Knots Landing. She later segued behind the camera, creating Showtime comedy Rude Awakening and CBS's Accidentally.

The producer, whose other credits include Surviving Suburbia, Cashmere Mafia and Less than Perfect, is repped by WME.
