ABC's adaptation of the Britcom "Pulling" has tapped Mandy Moore as one of its stars.

Moore will play one of three women in their 30s who are trying to figure out their lives in the pilot, Deadline reports. Her character, Louise, is described as optimistic and eager to be married. "Pulling" is based on the 2006 BBC series co-created by Sharon Horgan (who's executive producing the adaptation).

Moore starred in another ABC pilot, "Family Trap," last year, but it wasn't picked up. She currently does voice work on "Tron: Uprising."
