Soaps In Depth has learned that the actress has been cast in the new Nick At NIte daily primetime drama REACH FOR A STAR, being helmed by former GENERAL HOSPITAL executive producer Jill Farren Phelps.

Production of the series is set to get underway in March.
In Underwood's more immediate future is the upcoming HBO film Game Change, premiering Saturday, March 10, at 9 p.m. In the movie about the 2008 presidential campaign, the OLTL alum will play Sarah Palin's daughter, Willow.
