"Grease" star Stockard Channing joins Mandy Moore pilot

PanARMENIAN.Net - ABC's untitled Mandy Moore pilot has added "West Wing" and "Grease" star Stockard Channing as her mother and character actor John Fuller - recently seen as Rachel McAdams' dad in "Midnight in Paris" - as her father, The Wrap reported.

The pilot finds Moore's character, Annie, and her new husband, Ben, running a hip restaurant in her hometown - while dealing with her often overbearing family.

Channing plays Barbara, the manipulative matriarch, and Fuller plays the good-natured Steve, who does pretty much what his wife tells him to do.

The project from 21 Laps/Adelstein and 20th Century Fox TV is written by Bob Fisher and Stacy Traub, who exevutive produce with Shawn Levy, Marty Adelstein, and Becky Clements.
