*Rochelle Aytes has joined the cast of ABC’s comedy pilot “Work It,” a multicamera project, from Warner Bros. Television.
The show centers on two out-of-work car salesmen, Angel (Amaury Nolasco) and Lee (Ben Koldyke), who realize that in order to find employment again, they’ll need to dress as women to land jobs as pharmaceutical reps. Doing so inadvertently makes them better men, husbands and fathers.
Aytes, whose TV credits include “Detroit 1-8-7,” “Desperate Housewives” and “The Forgotten,” will play the part of Vanessa, the boss of Lee and Angel, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Kacie Lynch, who has appeared in “Barney & Friends,” landed the role of Kat. The pair joins Nolasco and Koldyke as well as Rebecca Mader (Grace), John Caparulo (Brian) and Kirstin Eggers (Kristin).
Partners Andrew Reich and Ted Cohen (Friends, Rules of Engagement) are set to write and executive produce, with Beth McCarthy-Miller (30 Rock, Saturday Night Live) on board to direct.
