Rose McIver has been cast as the lead role in CBS’ comedy pilot ‘Ghosts‘. Production of ‘Ghosts‘ pilot has already started but we will have to wait the pilot season (spring/summer) to know if the show will be picked up by CBS. Then, Season 1 production could start.
Source: hollywoodreporter.com | Rose will play half of a struggling young couple whose dreams come true when they inherit a beautiful country house, only to find out it is both falling apart and inhabited by many of the deceased former residents. The pilot, based on a BBC series of the same name, has also cast Brandon Scott Jones as one of the ghosts.
Rose‘s character, Samantha, is a Type A personality who loves fun, but not as much as she loves planning fun. A freelance journalist, she and her sous-chef husband, Ryan, spend so much time making ends meet that they scarcely have time for each other, so when she inherits a massive country estate, she’s eager to move in and live rent-free. A great listener and good person, Samantha strives to help the ghosts even as they drive her a little crazy with their constant clamoring for attention.
The single-camera ‘Ghosts‘ hails from Lionsgate TV and BBC Studios in association with CBS Television Studios. Writers Joe Port and Joe Wiseman (New Girl, CBS’ Fam) executive produce with Mathew Baynton, Jim Howick, Simon Farnaby, Laurence Rickard, Ben Willbond and Martha Howe-Douglas, creators of the BBC series; Alison Carpenter, Debra Hayward and Alison Owen of Monumental Television; and Angie Stephenson of BBC Studios.
The project is one of eight comedy pilots ordered this season.
