Greatest American Hero Reboot Casts Hannah Simone in Lead Role

Fresh Off the Boat creator Rachna Fruchbom and series producer/writer Nahnatchka Khan are executive-producing the half-hour comedy pilot.

ABC announced on Tuesday, February 13, that the Simone has landed the lead role in their new comedy pilot, The Greatest American Hero.

Simone has played the BFF to Zooey Deschanel in TV's New Girl the past seven seasons, but that series is starting to wrap up.

Hannah Simone is ready to kick butt. Her role here is Meera, an Indian-American woman who is still searching for the meaning of life at the age of 30.

But then, something odd happens that changes Meera's life forever and is entrusted with a super suit to protect the planet, according to a Deadline report. 20th Century Fox TV, where Fierce Baby and Fruchbom are based, co-produces with ABC Studios (see earlier India-West story here). The multi-talented British singer and actress (shown below) most recently co-starred in the sexy and successful Fifty Shades series-but she is also well known from her appearances in reality shows like The X Factor and America's Next Top Model.

She is repped by UTA, Alpita Patel Management and Ziffren Brittenham. She'll produce with Mandy Summers from Fierce Baby as well as the original show producer Steven J. Cannell's daughter, television director Tawnia McKiernan. Set in the 1970s, it follows an Irish-Catholic family with a working-class dad (Cudlitz), traditional mom, and eight boisterous sons navigating changes big and small during one of America's most turbulent decades. His previous credits include starring in the police drama "Southland" and the World War II series "Band of Brothers".

He is repped by APA, Anonymous Content and Stone Genow.
