Great news! Alyssa has landed a CBS comedy pilot! Read about it below:
Earl and Billie are getting back together! Alyssa Milano is set as the female lead opposite Jason Lee in CBS’ comedy pilot What Goes Around Comes Around. The duo, who played husband and wife Earl and Billie on Lee’s NBC single-camera comedy series My Name Is Earl, will once again play a couple in the CBS single-camera pilot. Also cast in the project, from Dan Kopelman and Aaron Kaplan, is Jee Young Han.
Written by Kopelman and directed by Tim Story, What Goes Around Comes Around centers on two fortysomething parents — Kenny (Lee), a husband, father and owner of a hip music management company; and Robin (Milano) — who were wild and reckless teenagers now face their worst nightmare of raising three teenagers. After vowing that she’d never be like her overly strict parents, Robin Spiller now tries to be open and understanding with her teenage kids — but sometimes she’d just like to lock them up until they’re ready for college.
Han plays Jess, the opinionated receptionist at Kenny’s (Lee) firm, who is always painting the worst-case scenarios of what his kids are doing and loves cornering Kenny’s clients for her own thrills.
Kopelman, Kaplan and Story executive produce for Warner Bros. TV and Kapital Entertainment.
This marks the first series gig for Milano since starring on the first two seasons of ABC’s Mistresses. The Charmed alumna and fashion entrepreneur, who recurred on My Name Is Earl, is currently the host and a judge on Lifetime’s Project Runway All Stars. Additionally, she entered the world of graphic novels with Hacktivist. MilanoCBS Logo is repped by CAA.
Hi there, I am Aniek and I am taking back Alyssa Milano Online. Thanks a lot to Chanel for taking such good care of it! I added a new layout, made possible by the talented Ray! I hope you all like it. My first update is an article about how Alyssa Milano Created a Fan-Gear Fashion Empire for Women. Read about it below and make sure you click the link to see the full interview!
Alyssa Milano isn’t crazy about pink. “I was in Dodger Stadium, and I was freezing—it was the beginning of the season, before the poop smell sets in,” says the star of TV’s Who’s the Boss? andCharmed, recalling a baseball game she attended eight years ago. “I went into the store to get something warm to wear. And I was offended.” The only color available in women’s clothing was pink. “Their answer for female sports apparel back then was ‘pink it and shrink it.’ It was either that or buy something from the kids’ section. Which I did. I got a kid’s hoodie.” In Dodger blue.
Milano, 40, figured she could do better than the mini Pepto-Bismol tees. So in 2007 she paid a fashion illustrator to draw some less boxy, team-color-appropriate clothing. Her agent happened to be friends with someone at Major League Baseball’s marketing division and got her a meeting with some execs. They liked her idea enough to set her up with former New York Giant Carl Banks, who runs the sports clothing collection for G-III Apparel Group, the $1.2 billion company that has licensing deals with Levi’s, Guess? (GES), Calvin Klein (PVH), and the major sports leagues. G-III Apparel agreed to manufacture and distribute her nascent line, Touch by Alyssa Milano, which had this motto: “Where the game meets the after party.”
“My idea was to make Touch fashionable enough for women to wear outside the arena,” Milano says. The line, which was launched in 2008, now includes $85 quilted jackets in team colors, $45 jeans with logos on the back pockets, and $30 pendant necklaces with the logo in a crystal-lined silver heart. Milano chose the designs and modeled every piece on her website.

CBS has ordered a pilot script for a proposed “re-imagining” of Charmed (read here), but according to at least one of the show’s original stars, it’s too soon for a reboot.
“The thing about them doing a #charmed reboot is… it just… it feels like yesterday. It feels too close,” Alyssa Milano tweeted after the news broke last week.
The new project will be written by Party of Five co-creator Chris Keyser and Sydney Sidner.
