Per Deadline, Six Feet Under‘s Lauren Ambrose has been cast as Jules in Amazon‘s The Interestings TV show pilot. Currently in The X-Files revival, Ambrose was also in the Dig TV series that was cancelled by USA Network after one season.
Based on Meg Wolitzer’s novel, the project follows friends who met as teens at a summer art camp as they grow up and into their own. Jessica Collins and Corey Cott were cast in The Interestings, earlier this month, joining Gabriel Ebert, who was cast back in January. The pilot is written by Nip/Tuck‘s Lyn Greene and Richard Levine. Mike Newell is directing.
Ambrose will play Jules. Seen in her mid-20s and mid-30s, Jules is determined to forge an acting career, but winds up a struggling therapist with a young child, an unemployable husband (Gabriel Ebert) and a tiny New York apartment.
