Revolution alumna Tracy Spiridakos is set as the female lead opposite Adam Brody in the ensemble cast of CBS’ untitled comedy pilot written by former Modern Family executive producer Dan O’Shannon and writer Peter Warren. Directed by Pam Fryman, the project revolves around a group of friends and family at three different times in their lives. Spiridakos will play Holly, Andrew’s (Brody) crush when they were 12 years old. There’s an undeniable spark when they meet again at 25, and when they reconnect at 40, the spark is still there.
In the CBS TV Studios-produced pilot, Spiridakos joins Brody as well as Tyler Labine and Kelly O’Sullivan. O’Shannon, Fryman, Dennis Erdman, Clark Peterson and Eric & Kim Tannenbaum executive produce.
Spiridakos, repped by WME and Authentic Talent Management, has a role on the third season of Bates Motel.

Revolution‘s Tracy Spiridakos is adding a little electricity to Bates Motel.
TVLine has learned that the actress is joining the A&E thriller’s upcoming third season in the recurring role of Annika Johnson, a mystery woman who shows up at the motel
Our theory (based solely on the fact that they would make a smoking’ hot couple): Annika will catch the eye of Norma’s oldest son, Dylan.
This marks Bates Motel‘s second major Season 3 hire, following last week’s casting of Sons of Anarchy vet Ryan Hurst as an onscreen rival to Kenny Johnson’s Caleb.
Congratulations to Tracy!
