WORK MOM follows Heather (Olstead), who finally gets promoted at her digital marketing firm and winds up hiring her recently unemployed mother, Eden (Emily Rutherfurd).
Scott, who was in the ABC Diversity showcase last year, will play Craig, an employee at Pow Marketing who is sweet and idealistic in his approach to both people and work. He's good at inspiring others but needs to apply some of that can-do attitude to his personal life. He recommended Heather for the "Team Leader" promotion and believes she's good at maximizing profits in a division of the firm. He's also quietly attracted to her, but she's blind to his interest. He takes Eden under his wing and explains her duties to her.
Longtime THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS fan favorite Beth Maitland tweeted that she's also involved in the project: "just finishing new Pilot for ABC Family starring John Ritter's son Tyler. Lovely guy! Cute show: Work Mom. Cross everything. xo"
