Following an extensive casting search, ABC has found its leading lady for Raised by Wolves.
Vice Principals and The New Normal alum Georgia King is set to topline the comedy pilot from executive producers Diablo Cody and Greg Berlanti, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Based on the U.K. series created by Caitlin Moran and Caroline Moran for Big Talk Productions and Channel 4, the single-camera comedy centers on Sheila Gable, a tough mother struggling to support her five opinionated, eccentric kids on a shoestring budget in a Midwestern town.
King, the first person to be cast in the pilot, will star as Sheila.
Cody (Juno, United States of Tara) penned the script and will exec produce alongside Berlanti and his Berlanti Productions banner topper Sarah Schechter. Also on board as exec producers are Caitlin and Caroline Moran, Kenton Allen, Matthew Justice, Caroline Leddy and Ben Taylor, with the latter set to direct the pilot.
King starred as a single mother on NBC’s The New Normal. Her credits also include features One Day and Wild Child. She is repped by Paradigm and Thruline.
