The series' creator, Brenda Hampton, has a new show in the works for ABC Family this summer, and casting has been announced. Those of you who have been asking me about Renee Olstead will not that she has a recurring role on the series. Here's the boilerplate:
ABC Family has announced casting for its as yet “Untitled Brenda Hampton Project,” by the creator of “7th Heaven.” Molly Ringwald (“Pretty in Pink”), John Schneider (“Smallville”) and Ernie Hudson (“Oz”) are among the cast, including newcomer Shailene Woodley (“The O.C.”).
