Julie Bowen has been tapped to star as the lead in a new comedy pilot Raised by Wolves from CBS.
The pilot hails from Will & Grace creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan who will pen the series as well as serve as executive producers.
In this multi-camera series, a successful and fiercely independent crisis manager’s (Bowen) world is turned upside down when she decides to let someone into her life for the first time — an 11-year-old girl who she adopts and raises with the occasional help of her fragile, nervous wreck of a sister.
Bowen’s casting in Raised by Wolves comes a couple of months ahead of her signing off of the critically acclaimed ABC comedy Modern Family. Modern Family is to conclude after 11 seasons on the network this April.
