Brittany Snow has been cast in the lead role of the untitled Fox drama pilot from Annie Weisman and Jason Katims based on the Australian series “Sisters,” Variety has learned.
In the Fox project, only child Julia Bechley (Snow) has her life turned upside down when it’s revealed that her father, a pioneering Nobel Prize-winning fertility doctor, used his own sperm to conceive dozens of children over the course of his career. Reeling from this explosive revelation, Julia discovers two new sisters — her former best friend and an ex-Olympic athlete. Against all odds, the women attempt to form an untraditional family and lean on each other as they grapple with their own identity crises.
Snow is known for starring in the hit “Pitch Perfect” film franchise. Her other film roles include “Prom Night,” “Hairspray,” and “John Tucker Must Die.” Her past television roles include “American Dreams,” “Nip/Tuck,” and “Guiding Light.”
She is repped by Gersh, Principal Entertainment, and Ziffren Brittenham.
The original “Sisters” series, produced Endemol Shine Australia, was created by Jonathan Gavin and Imogen Banks. Annie Weisman will write and executive produce the pilot. Jason Katims, Banks, Jeni Mulein, and Sharon Levy will also executive produce. Leslye Headland will direct the pilot and executive produce. Universal Television will produce in association with Endemol Shine North America.

Looks like Brittany has landed a new movie role:
Pitch Perfect songbird Brittany Snow has lined up a potentially treacherous New York journey before the Barden Bellas reunite for a third outing.
The actress has boarded XYZ Films and Bullett Pictures’ Dave Bautista action vehicle Bushwick, replacing Suburgatory and Evil Dead reboot star Jane Levy, who was cast in March.
Snow will play a young woman who finds her neighborhood in Brooklyn under attack, with New York being used as a negotiation tool as Texas tries to secede from the U.S.
Bautista, fresh from the recent record-breaking bow of Spectre in the U.K., will star as a war vet who helps her cross the five blocks of Bushwick — littered with looters, local militias, invading forces and one crazy cousin — to get home and be reunited with her grandmother.
Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, who wrote the story for Bushwick, will direct from a screenplay by Nick Damici and Graham Reznik. XYZ’s co-founder Nate Bolotin will serve as producer alongside Bullett’s Adam Folk and Joseph Mensch of Mensch Productions. Bautista and Jonathan Meisner are exec producing with Todd Brown and Nick Spicer of XYZ.
XYZ is shopping the project to international buyers at the AFM and co-repping with WME Global for U.S. sales.
Bushwick is set to start shooting in New York next month.
Snow is managed by Gotham/Principal and represented by WME and attorney P.J. Shapiro. Bautista is represented by Gersh, manager Jonathan Meisner and attorney Jay Rosenthal. Murnion and Milott are represented by Verve and managed by PYE.
Johnny Simmons is heading up the cast of Kevin Pollak’s The Late Bloomer, which has begun filming in Los Angeles.
Pollak is making his directorial debut on the feature, written by by Joe Nussbaum, Paul A. Kaplan and Mark Torgove, and by Kyle Cooper and Austyn Jeffs from the book Man Made: A Memoir of My Body, by journalist Ken Baker.
The book recounts Baker’s real-life experience dealing with a tumor that affected his hormonal system, preventing him from entirely going through puberty until age 27. In the feature inspired by the book, Simmons will play a sex therapist who undergoes puberty in the course of just a few weeks once a tumor is discovered and treated. His parents are played by Maria Bello and J.K. Simmons. He works in an office headed by Jane Lynch. His various friends are played by Beck Bennett, Kumail Nanjiani and Blake Cooper. And the woman he ends up pursuing is played by Brittany Snow. The cast also includes Paul Wesley, Ken Marino, Ileana Douglas, Charlotte McKinney, Vanessa Ragland and Leonora Crichlow.
Heidi Jo Markel of Eclectic Pictures and Raphael Kryszek and Jesse Israel of Ineffable Pictures are producing, with Conor Charles as co-producer.

MTV today announced it has ordered an animated pilot presentation with the working title “Fancy Bastards” from Executive Producers Jason Micallef and Kristen Schaal alongside Underground’s Josh Turner McGuire and Trevor Engelson. Price Peterson, Ryan Sandoval and Lily Price wrote the pilot and also serve as Executive Producers. Titmouse, Inc. is the studio.
In the half-hour animated comedy, a small town is shocked to learn its five most awkward outcasts all share the same father – a notorious ginger cad who had an indiscretion filled night during a whirlwind visit to Vegas nine years ago… and just happens to be a prince. The misfits turn into royal rockstars overnight, but soon find that the “Fancy Bastard” life is no fairytale.
The stellar cast includes Brittany Snow (“Pitch Perfect”), Sharon Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne, Natasha Leggero (“Neighbors”), Nasim Pedrad (“SNL”), John Roberts (“Bob’s Burgers”), Jameeliah Garrett (“Supanatural”) and Jessica Lowe (“Blended”).
I’m the proudest fan girl ever right now! I hope everyone had a chance to watch “Pitch Perfect 2” this weekend! I watched it Saturday afternoon and theater was PACKED!! Brittany was fantastic (as per usual) and being a fan of hers for nearly 13 years I couldn’t help but feel so proud of our girl!! PP2 is breaking records!!:
The final tally is in, and Pitch Perfect 2 may end the weekend between $68.9M to $70.3M after a stunning Saturday night of $24.6M. Universal is going the high end on this, but everyone else in town (and we) are sticking to the lower estimate. We’ll see if the studio over-anticipated to get the $70M headline across the country (they’ve done so before). Still, the Universal film from first-time feature director Elizabeth Banks is the highest-opening musical ever (see chart below) and, as we previously reported, out-performed the $65M lifetime domestic gross of the first film.
Rentrak just noted the rarity of that, but said it’s a similar scenario to the performance of the second Austin Powers‘ film, The Spy Who Shagged Me which opened to $54.9M vs. the $53.8M that the original film earned in its domestic run. Universal is also boasting (as well it should) that PP2 is the second-highest PG-13 comedy opening ever (only behind Austin Powers Goldmember which opened to $73M in the summer of 2002). They also note that PP2 is the fifth-highest opening of the year to date and also marks the seventh time this year that a Universal film has held the No. 1 position (more than any other studio).
