Ripley's representative confirmed her casting in "Modern Love" to Playbill.com. A report on Deadline.com states that the series will also include Eric Stoltz, Cara Buono, Ally Sheedy, Charlie Semine and Samantha Futerman. Alan Poul will direct the pilot.
The series, based on actual New York Times columns, takes a look at modern relationships. Stoltz will appear as a newspaper science editor, who is unexpectedly assigned to edit the paper's Modern Love column. Ripley will play his wife.
Jenny Bicks ("Sex and the City") created and executive produces the series for Sony Pictures TV.
After concluding the national tour of Next to Normal in July, Ripley switched gears to shoot the independent film "Isn't It Delicious?" with Tony nominee Keir Dullea and Kathleen Chalfant last month. She earned a Tony Award for playing Diana Goodman in Next to Normal and earned a Tony nomination for Side Show.
