Amy Smart could be the future president of the United States -- provided her pilot gets picked up.
Smart ("Smith," "Just Friends") has taken the lead role in ABC's pilot "See Cate Run," about a woman who may be destined to lead the country. A pair of FOX pilots -- the comedy "Two Dollar Beer" and a drama about "past-life investigators" -- have also added to their casts, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"See Cate Run," formerly titled "I, Claudia," is about a woman (Smart) who will one day be a serious presidential contender. In the present, though, she's a young prosecutor, and the nation's highest office is nowhere on her radar.
Smart's last TV series was CBS' "Smith," which lasted only a handful of episodes in fall 2006. She starred in a CBS pilot called "The Meant to Be's" last year; her recent movie credits include "Mirrors" and "Crank 2: High Voltage," which will hit theaters in April.
At FOX, "Two Dollar Beer" is an ensemble comedy about a group of young Detroiters who lean on each other while trying to handle the tough economic times. The cast includes Jonathan Sadowski ("Friday the 13th") as a former high school athlete, Noureen Dewulf ("The Comebacks") and Kevin Simpson as a married couple and Ricky Mabe ("Beautiful People," "Zack and Miri Make a Porno") as a guy who's described as "a bit off."
The reincarnation drama, which comes from "Friday Night Lights" writer David Hudgins, is about a team of investigators who look into clients' past lives to solve problems in this one. Australian actor Nick Bishop will play a recently fired detective whose wife recently died. "All My Children" actress Kelli Giddish will play a psychologist who believes in reincarnation, and Ravi Patel ("Easy Money") will play a therapist.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
