Congrats to Australians in Film member and friend Natasha Bassett
The 21 year old has been cast in Fox's half-hour pilot "Here's Your Damn Family".
Bassett joins John Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Jane Kaczmarek (from Malcolm in the Middle fame) and David James Elliott (Dawn Patrol), who are already attached.
A multi-camera comedy, Here's Your Damn Family is created by Ricky Blitt, Johnny Galecki (Big Bang Theory) and Stephen McPherson.
The story revolves around a perpetually single mother who surprises her 30-something son, who still lives at home (Heder), with unexpected news - she has gotten married and her new husband (Elliott) and his three teenage children are moving in!
According to Deadline, Bassett is cast to play Emma, a pretty and smart but rebellious 17-year-old who’s upset her dad remarried so quickly after her mother’s death
