Kelly Osbourne is making the jump from cable to network TV.
The 19-year-old star of "The Osbournes" has signed on to the cast of "Doing It," a one-hour pilot for ABC, according to the entertainment trade magazine Daily Variety. Kelly will tackle the role of Deborah in the teenage drama, which follows the sex lives of three Seattle boys from different walks of life.
Described as a cross between "My So-Called Life" and "American Pie," the show focuses on a traditionally good-looking jock type, a somewhat geeky kid and a third boy who seems mature for his age, though he's yet to connect with the opposite sex. While each character is on a quest to have sex, they're also confronted by the consequences that arise when the parties involved are too young to handle the responsibility.
Osbourne's co-stars include Sean Faris ("Pearl Harbor"), Chris Lowell, Jon Foster ("Terminator 3"), Marguerite Moreau ("Runaway Jury," "Queen of the Damned") and Missy Peregrym ("Black Sash").
It's not yet known when production is expected to begin. An ABC spokesperson did not return calls by press time.
"Doing It" is written and directed by Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah, whose credits include the high school drama "Freaks and Geeks" and the NBC comedy "Just Shoot Me." The show is based on Melvin Burgess' novel of the same name, scheduled to hit U.S. bookstores in spring.
Osbourne follows in the footsteps of fellow MTV stars Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, who have signed separate development deals with ABC (see "Nick Lachey Signs Deal That'll Put Even More Cameras On Him").
