Mandy Moore Cast As Lead In Sharon Horgan’s US Pilot ‘Pulling’

Casting has begun on Irish actress-writer Sharon Horgan’s US pilot ‘Pulling’, with Mandy Moore and June Diane Raphael confirmed to play lead roles.

The pilot, which has been picked up by ABC in America, is executive produced by Horgan and Dennis Kelly, who created the original ‘Pulling’ series for the BBC some years ago.

The UK series, which ran for three seasons from 2006 to 2009, was a ratings success, and a pilot episode was picked up by ABC late last year.

Moore, who is known for roles in TV series ‘Entourage’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, as well as her music career, will play Louise, a woman whose desperate attempts to find a husband backfire. Raphael, a successful comedian, is known for her roles in 'Bride Wars' and comedy series 'Whitney'. She will play the role of Donna, a woman who moves in with her girl friends after her relationship ends.

'Pulling' is centred around three 30-something women who refuse to conform to society’s traditional ways.

Horgan, originally from Co Meath, starred in the BBC Three version, which saw one of the women break off her engagement the day before her wedding.

The pilot for ABC has been written by Lee Eisenberg (Bad Teacher) and Gene Stupnitsky (The US Office) and directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect). ABC Studios and Kapital Entertainment are producing, with Eisenberg, Stupnitsky and Aaron Kaplan the additional executive producers.

Horgan previously worked with ABC on the comedy ‘Bad Mom’, which she created and co-starred in.
