One Life to Live’s Josh Kelly (Cutter) has just landed one of the lead roles in a new MTV comedy pilot called Dumb Girls! The show is created by Lauren Iungerich, the creator/executive producer of Awkward.
According to Deadline.com, also on tap in the cast with Kelly for Dumb Girls are: Christine Evangelista (The Joneses), Xosha Roquemore, and Nico Evers Swindell (Prince William in William & Kate).
The ensemble project, which will be produced in-house, revolves around a group of twentysomethings. It centers on Michelle (Evangelista), who is uber-competent at her job but foolish when it comes to guys. Supported by her stalwart friends — Alex (Xosha), Danny (Josh Kelly), who admits he likes her more than a friend, and Ian (Swindell) — she mounts a plan to get the guy she likes.
The news item does make mention that Josh Kelly has not been approached yet about continuing with One Life to Live when it moves online, though that is considered likely.
