ABC Family Taps Familiar Faces for WORK MOM Pilot, Including Renee Olstead, Brandon Scott & Beth Maitland

ABC Family has tapped several familiar faces to join its comedy pilot WORK MOM. GREY'S ANATOMY alum Brandon Scott and THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER's Renee Olstead have nabbed series regular roles on the workplace comedy pilot from BUNHEADS duo Grant Levy and Dominik Rothbard.

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"
