Ashley Greene cast in Americana fashion drama
It's the fashion show we've all been waiting for! ABC is currently developing a new drama about the fashion world, set to co-star Twilight's Ashley Greene.
Though there's a ton of reality shows revolving around fashion these days -- Project Runway, The Rachel Zoe Project, America's Next Top Model and the upcoming Fashion Star -- we have yet to set our eyes on a network drama focused solely on the intricate ins and outs of the fascinating fashion world. The closest we've come since the days of Sex and the Cityis ABC Family's teen-targeted series Jane By Design and the gorgeous outfits on Blair and Serena in new episodes Gossip Girl.
Without a Trace's Anthony LaPaglia stars as a legendary fashion designer, and the Twilight actress will a play a young designer who joins the business from outside the family tree, causing an upturn in both the company and his family. Greene's character will bear the same name as that of her role in The Twilight Saga -- Alice!
Ashley just finished a five-episode arc on ABC's period drama, Pan Am, in which her character was set to marry the airline's copilot and her childhood friend, despite her hidden sexual orientation. No word yet on when the pilot episode of Americana will air, but so far, this series sounds like it'll be worth the wait!
