ABC Family has given the green light to the one-hour drama JANE BY DESIGN, which follows a teenager who lands a job with a hip retail company when they mistake her for an adult. GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Greg Vaughan (ex-Lucky) had been cast in the pilot -- formerly called WHAT WOULD JANE DO -- as Jane's father, but the actor says that he will no longer be involved in the series.
"I unfortunately will not be a part of this new direction the show has taken!" Vaughan tweeted shortly after the network announced the show's pickup. "I enjoyed myself tremendously & wish them all success!"
It's unknown at this time whether Vaughan will still appear in the pilot or not. JANE BY DESIGN is set to premiere early next year, starring Erica Dasher in the title role, and Andie MacDowell as her demanding boss, Gray Chandler Murray.
