ABC Family on Wednesday announced casting for its new, as-yet untitled series from
7th Heaven creator
Brenda Hampton (which, in case you're curious, is referred to as the "Untitled Brenda Hampton Project"). Not only has the show signed on
Smallville's John Schneider (Jonathan Kent) and
Oz's Ernie Hudson (Leo Glynn), but also the former
Sixteen-year-old America loved,
The series, to air this summer, will be a one-hour drama that - as Ausiello previously reported - centers on a family and their friends after 15-year-old Amy Nicholson becomes unexpectedly pregnancy (no, Diablo Cody is not signed on). The show's recurring cast members will also include newcomer Shailene Woodley (previously seen on The O.C.), Camille Winbush ( The Bernie Mac Show) and Allen Evangelista ( Zoey 101).
How exciting will it be to see these new cast additions together? We'll have to wait for the drama to unfold. - Anna Dimond
