Annaleigh Ashford Set To Star in Upcoming ABC Comedy Pilot THREE RIVERS

According to Variety, Broadway darling Annaleigh Ashford has been cast in the lead role of upcoming ABC comedy pilot THREE RIVERS.

Ashford will star as Rebecca, who left her family's Texas ranch years ago to work at an upscale hotel in New York. But after being promised ownership of the ranch by her smooth-talking cowboy dad Beau, she's back and ready to utilize her big city tactics to turn their rustic ranch into a destination spot oozing Southern hospitality. Getting her siblings to fall in line with her vision will be the real thorn in Rebecca's side. And that's going to be even harder once Beau reveals a life-changing family secret.

Ashford currently appears in the FX anthology series "American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace" in the role of Elizabeth Cote. Other television credits include Fox's "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," , and Showtime's "Masters of Sex." Annaleigh is also no stranger to the stage, having recently appeared in the revival of Stephen Sondheim's Sunday in the Park With George opposite Jake Gyllenhaal. Ashford has also starred in Wicked, Legally Blonde, Kinky Boots, and Sylvia on Broadway.

"Three Rivers" will be written and executive produced by Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer, with ABC Studios. The pair is currently under an overall deal, producing. They have previously collaborated on shows such as "Friends," "Joey," "The New Adventures of Old Christine," and "Veronica's Closet." Tristram Shapeero will direct the pilot.
