Just the Facts: Mindy Cohn returns!
Brenda Hampton is reviving the career of another '80s icon. The writer-producer -- who made Molly Ringwald relevant again in The Secret Life of the American Teenager -- has tapped The Facts of Life's Mindy Cohn (go, Natalie!) to join the cast of her currently untitled ABC Family drama as a regular.
Cohn will play Cecilia, the overprotective mother of underachieving funny girl Dylan (Ana Lucasey).
The hour-long project revolves around four ethnically diverse teenage girls (Lucasey, Katelyn Tarver, Valerie Tian, and Christian Serratos) who attend private school in California. Brad Rowe (Tell Me You Love Me) also stars.
Michael Ausiello will be contributing to Movieline.com and Deadline.com as he preps for the January launch of a new TV-centric website.
