EMILY OSMENT TO LEAD '25' 
Emily Osment is moving to 25 at CBS
Good and bad news from the TV comedy world. Sad news is that Freeform is ending its sitcom Young and Hungry with the remaining ten episodes of the fifth season which will air from June 20th. The good news is that its star Emily Osment has booked a lead role in new CBS multicam sitcom pilot 25 which follows twenty something Kyle (Matt Shively), who comes to Austin to finally convince his old best friend from camp, Kate (Osment), that they are perfect for each other. Unfortunately, she just got engaged. A lot of guys would give up; Kyle is not one of those guys. But to Kyle’s surprise, even though he came to town looking for “the one,” he might end up with much more than that.

  1. I'm not familiar with the books of Philippa Gregory or with the previous series The White Princess, but everything on the spanish royalty past and present, is bound to be captivating.

    1. If you like period set series you should check out White Princess, it was a really beautiful series, just eight episodes. There is even a scene in it when the king and the queen of England go to Spain to meet the little Spanish princess for their son and she dances for them in the palace of Alhambra, a really memorable scene.

  2. I'm happy to see Emily Osment is still relevant. Most of those supporting Disney cast members usually fade off into oblivion once the hit show ends, so I'm glad there was life after Hannah Montana for her. I'll have to binge watch Young and Hungry now. I'll be starting Baby Daddy in another week or two. Probably when Allison is on spring break.

    1. She was born for comedy, she really is the life of Young and Hungry, she and her co star Aimee Carrero for whom I also hope she will get some new work as she is brilliant. I miss Baby Daddy terribly :( I remember it was an instant crush when I watched the first episode and had to binge another ten the very same weekend :) the rest is history.... Hope Baby Daddy stars get new work too.
