And Fox created woman: Seehorn spells 'Eva'


Rhea Seehorn is Fox's Eva Adams.

After a lengthy search and a series of tests, the network has cast Seehorn in the title role of its hourlong pilot based on the Argentinean telenovela "Lalola."

"Eva Adams," from writer Kevin Falls and Sony TV, is set at a sports agency and centers on Adam Evanson, an egotistic, sexist agent who, under a witch's spell, turns into a woman so he can endure the harassment he has been dishing out.

On the project, executive produced by Falls and Jamie Tarses, Seehorn joins previously cast James Van Der Beek and David Denman.

Seehorn's series credits include USA's "The Starter Wife" and Fox's "Head Cases." She is repped by Phoenix Artists and Untitled. (partialdiff)
