Stern knows 'Nobody' for ABC Family


Dawn Stern has landed the lead role in the ABC Family drama pilot "Nobody," from "Desperate Housewives" writer Kevin Murphy.

"Nobody" centers on Jessica Drake (Stern), a mother who gives up her own identity to save the life of her daughter. In doing so, however, she finds that she must pay the price of being erased from the memories of her family and the rest of the world.

Jessica ends up working for a covert ops branch of heaven dedicated to fighting the forces of darkness on Earth -- while continuing to make sure her family is safe.

The pilot starts shooting this month in Vancouver.

Murphy is executive producing "Nobody," based on the comic book created by Alex Amado, Sharon Cho and Charlie Adlard. He also is writing the pilot.

Noreen Halpern, John Morayniss, Jason Netter and Ken Levin also are executive producing.

Blueprint Entertainment will produce the one-hour project for ABC Family.

Stern was a series regular on NBC's "Viper" and Fox's "413 Hope St." She also has appeared on such series as UPN's "The Parkers," CBS' "The Young & the Restless," Fox's "Wanda at Large" and ABC's "Thieves." Her film credits include "The Fugitive" and "Original Gangstas."

Stern is repped by Robert S. Costanzo at the Entertainment Management Group.
