I hear former My Boys star Jordana Spiro has been tapped as the lead in ABC’s comedy pilot Lost and Found. The multicamera comedy, from Warner Bros. TV and creator Marisa Coughlan, centers on Jo (Spiro), a narcissistic 30something New York City bartender and party girl whose life is turned upside-down when the conservative 18-year-old son she gave up for adoption at 16 turns up on her doorstep.

For a second consecutive pilot season, Spiro was pursued for multiple projects. Last year, she settled on NBC’s anthology comedy Love Bites. The pilot went to series but Spiro had to exit after 3 episodes because of her commitment to TBS’ My Boys. With the cult comedy now officially canceled, Spiro, repped by ICM and Principal, was offered several pilots and picked Lost and Found. Spiro’s original Love Bites co-star Becki Newton also booked the lead in a multicamera comedy pilot this season, an untitled CBS family sitcom from creators/executive producers Jeff and Jackie Filgo. Coincidentally, the Filgos also serve as exec producers on Lost and Found.
