After getting to pilot stage at ABC last season with a comedy from 20th Century Fox TV and 21 Laps/Adelstein, Mandy Moore has reunited with the studio and Levy and Marty Adelstein’s studio-based company for a new comedy project. Titled Miss Most Likely, the project, written by Rich Appel, again has landed at ABC, where it has received substantial penalty in a competitive situation. It stars Moore as the first 28-year-old to run away from home to the big city so she can finally start the life she’s always wanted. Unfortunately for her, her family decides to run away with her. The Cleveland Show co-creator/executive producer Appel will executive produce with Moore, Adelstein, Levy and Becky Clements. ABC has been high on Moore, repped by WME and Ziffren, and kept her project last year in serious consideration for a series pickup in large part because of her appeal. In addition to Cleveland Show, WME-repped Appel also has worked on Family Guy and American Dad!, collaborating with Seth MacFarlane.
