Rachel Bilson Returns to Her Fox Roots With New Wedding Dramedy Pilot


With pilot season in full swing, it looks like Fox is looking to bring a heartwarming and unique concept to life with their brand new pilot order and they’re bringing back a familiar face. Rachel Bilson, who starred on Fox’s iconic teen drama The O.C.  is heading back to the network to lead a potential new series, and we have to admit that our interest is piqued.

According to Deadlinethe series is tentatively titled Lovestruck and the entire first season would take place over the course of one wedding night. The dramedy would follow “the entire wedding party as we learn surprising reveals about both their present and past. We’ll see that things aren’t always what they seem and explore the complicated bonds of love, friendship and family at different stages of life.” Sounds pretty interesting, right? While there’s a lot of love at weddings, there also can be a lot of drama and history as well.

Bilson would be playing the lead role of Daisy Valentine, the bride who is described as “a bolt of pure sunshine who works in music education.” Shameless vet Steve Kazee will star as her groom Alex Fletcher. Alex is “a charming, caring and earnest music journalist who has a way with words.” If you ever watched Shameless than you know that Kazee is one talented musician. The series was created by Californication’s Tom Kapinos and the pilot will be written by him as well. Empire’s Sanaa Hamri will direct.

Other pilots hoping to make their way to series at Fox include Deputya wild west drama starring Bex Taylor-Klaus and Stephen Dorff and Prodigal Son, a drama starring The Walking Dead’s Tom Payne and Michael Sheen.
