The network has tapped Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia to star in its untitled dramedy from Galavant's Dan Fogelman, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Also joining the ensemble drama are Justin Hartley, Sterling Brown and Ron Cephas Jones.
The hourlong dramedy is described as a unique ensemble that follows characters all born on the same day.
The untitled dramedy landed at NBC following a bidding war. NBC's plan is to hire a casting director shortly and film the pilot before year's end.
Ventimiglia's recent credits include ABC's The Whispers, Fox's Gotham and TNT's Mob City. He's repped by CAA, Management 360 and McKuin Frankel. Singer-actress-producer Moore, meanwhile, continues to push for a breakout TV role. Her credits include Fox's Red Band Society, ABC's Grey's Anatomy, Disney Channel's animated Tangled follow-up, and pilots Good Session and Advocates. She's repped by Gersh, Untitled and Ziffren Brittenham.
Hartley (Smallville,The Young and the Restless, Mistresses) is with Innovative Artists. Jones (Mr. Robot) is with Leading Artists. Brown is with Innovative and JWS Entertainment.
