The voice of Rapunzel in Tangled just scored a pilot gig at ABC.

The network just gave a big heck yes to a new comedy that will star Mandy Moore as a newlywed who “gets the opportunity of a lifetime to run a hip, new restaurant” in her hometown. At the same time, this new “opportunity” brings her closer to her “needy and high maintenance family.” Hilarity ensues! The comedy’s from Bob Fisher and Stacy Traub.

In the meantime, ABC is keeping the love alive for primetime soaps by ordering Mistresses to series. Targeted for summer, the show from KJ Steinberg is described by ABC as “a provocative thrilling drama that finds four women with scandalous romantic lives, caught in storms of excitement and self-discovery, secrecy and betrayal, and at the mercy of the complex relationships they’ve created.”

I seem to be caught in a storm of excitement, myself, over how many more Revenge-style dramas the network has in the works for next season. Speaking of which, have you checked out Grandpa Grayson?
