Jessica Gao penned the pilot, which will star Holly Chou.
Ashley Park, who was Tony-nominated for creating the role of Gretchen Wieners in the new musical Mean Girls, has been cast in a comedy pilot for ABC, according to Deadline.
Holly Chou will star in the currently untitled series, which will also feature Cindy Cheung, Stephen Park, Kelly Hu, Helen Hong, Ki Hong Lee, and John Gemberling.
The pilot, from Jessica Gao, Imagine Television Studios, ABC Studios, and CBS TV Studios, was written by Gao and concerns Janet Zhao (Chou), a first generation Chinese-American woman who becomes the new matriarch of her family when she is named as the sole inheritor by her late, wealthy grandmother.
Park, who took her final bow in Mean Girls this past weekend, will also be seen in the Netflix revival of Tales of the City.
