Kindreds centers on a curmudgeonly former patent lawyer (Kathy Bates) and her team of misfit attorneys at a storefront law firm. Snow, who turned 24 Tuesday, will play Bates' assistant and a member of the firm.

The actress was most recently attached to star as the young Lily Rhodes in the Gossip Girl spin-off that never materialized.
