Ambrose and Van Der Beek Cast in New Shows


Lauren Ambrose is set to star opposite Parker Posey in Fox’s comedy pilot “The Return of Jezebel James,” while James Van Der Beek has joined ABC’s drama pilot “Football Wives,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Jezebel,” from Regency TV, centers on a single book editor (Posey) who can’t conceive and asks her estranged younger sister (Ambrose) to carry her baby.

“Wives,” from ABC TV Studio, follows the wives of professional football players. Van Der Beek (“Dawson’s Creek”) will play a rookie.
