Elisha Cuthbert to Star in CBS’ Ny-Lon


Elisha Cuthbert (“24”) is returning to television as the female lead in CBS’ one-hour pilot “Ny-Lon,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Also cast in the ABC Studios-produced adaptation of the British series are Caterina Scorsone and Johnny Whitworth.

“Ny-Lon” centers on Edie (Cuthbert), a New York literacy teacher/record store clerk, and Michael, a London stock broker, who embark on a cross-continental romance.

Scorsone will play Edie’s roommate, a slutty, bohemian rocker. Whitworth (“CSI: Miami”) will play Edie’s rocker ex-boyfriend.
