Bilson will play the bride, Daisy Valentine, on the potential series and is described as “a bolt of pure sunshine” who works in music education.  

Bilson is coming off a series regular role on the one-and-done Take Two. This role will mark her return to Fox following her four-year stint as Summer Roberts on The O.C. from 2003-2007.

Rachel joins a cast that already includes Andie MacDowell, Kathleen Turner, Richard Roxburgh, Usman Ally, and Madeline Wise. 

Sounds like a different type of series, but one that could thrive on Fox, right?

In keeping with the Fox news, Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars) has landed the male lead on the network's comedy pilot, Adam & Eve. 

He will star opposite Supergirl grad, Odette Annable, on the prospective series. 

“It’s a comedy about the big questions: What makes a marriage last?” per the official logline.

“Do people ever really change? And, after 40 years together, why can’t we pick a place for dinner without it turning into a whole, you know, “thing?”

Hansen is also signed on to reprise the role of Dick Casablancas on the upcoming Veronica Mars revival at Hulu. 

Meanwhile, ABC's in-the-works black-ish spinoff has started the process of rounding out its cast. 

Arica Himmel will star as Young Bow on the backdoor pilot of the series which is slated to air as an episode of black-ish later this season.

This would be the second black-ish offshoot following grown-ish which defected to Freeform after being passed on by ABC.
