Becki Newton has been cast in an as-yet untitled CBS pilot written and executive produced by Jackie and Jeff Filgo, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Andy Ackerman will direct the pilot, and also serve as an executive producer.

The program will center on a blue-collar father and his family. Newton will play the central character's unmarried daughter who, along with her 12-year-old son, lives with her parents and her recently widowed grandmother.

Newton starred in the City Center Encores! production of Girl Crazy. She is best known for her role as Amanda Taven on ABC's Ugly Betty and appeared at Feinstein's at Loews Regency with her former Ugly Betty co-star Michael Urie.
