It has just been announced that former child star and Disney darling Raven Symone has been tapped to star in the ABC Family Pilot, “Great State of Georgia.”
The show, which is well written and produced by Jennifer Weiner, centers around a full-figured actress from the south trying to make her way in the big city as an entertainer.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I was called in to read for this part. Losing out to a veteran I admire as much as Raven Symone makes the sting of not booking it virtually non-existent. Who knows… if the show gets picked up maybe Georgia will need a big sister or arch rival 🙂
