Former iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove is headed to NBC.
The 19-year-old actress, who recently finished her role on the long-running Nickelodeon series, has signed on to Christina Ricci’s comedy pilot Girlfriend in a Coma.
The comedy is about a woman (Ricci) who wakes after a nearly two-decade-long coma to discover she has a 17-year-old daughter (Cosgrove) from a pregnancy she was unaware of. The show is based on the novel by Douglas Coupland.
Cosgrove was on Nick’s top-rated iCarly for seven years. The Dick Wolf-produced sitcom is being piloted for series consideration for next season. »
