Hey guys looks like Brittany was cast in a new pilot! Let’s hope it gets picked up, you can read a bit about it below:
Pitch Perfect‘s Brittany Snow is set as the female lead opposite Jack Whitehall in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot An American Education, based on the BBC Three series Bad Education. British actor-comedian Whitehall, who created and starred in the original series, is reprising his role as Alfie Wickers, now a British transplant and an unorthodox young teacher in the San Diego public school system. Alfie loves his students, but his youthful, often naive enthusiasm and unconventional methods put him at odds with the test-obsessed administrators. Snow, repped by ICM Partners, Magnolia Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham, will play Sarah McIntyre, an earnest and book-smart chemistry teacher who is the object of Alfie’s eye as her current boyfriend is leaving the country. Rosie Perez co-stars the school’s hard-assed vice principal. Craig Zisk is directing from a script by Peter Huyck and Alex Gregory.
This is a few weeks old, but it might be potentially good news for Britt’s pilot that wasn’t picked up by FOX:
Fox is redeveloping The Assistants. The network and studio Warner Bros. Television have extended the options on stars Brittany Snow, Stephen Root, Catherine O’Hara and Jillian Bell with an eye toward re-piloting the comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The Assistants (previously To My Future Assistant) is based on the blog and book To My Assistant by Lydia Whitlock. The single-camera comedy revolves around assistants at a big New York law firm who band together as a family to help one another cope with the obnoxious, overbearing bosses who challenge their sanity on a daily basis. The original pilot starred Snow (Pitch Perfect) as Jen, a pretty, athletic, ambitious and tightly wound aspiring attorney who just passed the bar and is hoping for a promotion. O’Hara (the Christopher Guest movies) was Magda, one of the bitchy attorneys at the firm; Root (Boardwalk Empire) plays Jen’s boss Frank, an intense attorney who isn’t the monster he seems. Bell, for whom Assistants is in second position to Comedy Central’s Workaholics, is a recurring guest star who played Denny, a single mom and assistant at the firm whose apathy toward her job occasionally prompts her to take three-hour breaks to tend to her son — or go to the movies. Friends’ Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer penned the Warner Bros. Television pilot and executive produce alongside Lin Pictures’ Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz. Fox passed over the pilot in May. A formal pilot order has not officially been announced.
The stars of the film “Pitch Perfect” will open the 2013 MTV Movie Awards in their first-ever live performance on April 14.
“Pitch Perfect” stars Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Ester Dean, Adam Devine, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Ben Platt, Brittany Snow and host Rebel Wilson will re-unite as the dueling college a cappella groups, the Barden Bellas and Treblemakers. They will perform a mash-up of songs conceived and executed by the film’s director, Jason Moore.
The soundtrack to “Pitch Perfect” has been a surprise hit, selling 622,000 copies, according to Soundscan. A single, “Cups (Pitch Perfect’s When I’m Gone)” by actress Anna Kendrick, was sent to radio on March 26 and has immediately seen its airplay rise; it is expected to reach the Pop Songs Airplay chart within the next few weeks.
Meanwhile, the new single climbs seven spots to No. 81 on the Hot 100. Collectively, all versions of the song have sold 584,000 downloads.
The film is nominated for four MTV Movie Awards this year: Best Female and BestBreakthrough Performances (Rebel Wilson); Best Musical Moment (Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Alexis Knapp, Ester Dean and Hana Mae Lee); and Best WTF Moment (Anna Camp Hack-Appella).
“Pitch Perfect’s” Wilson will host the 22nd edition of the awards. Will Ferrell and Emma Watson will receive honorary awards.
In addition, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will perform their new single, “Can’t Hold Us.”
