Ashley Benson's New Gig on ABC Prime Time; Playing Rebecca Romijn's daughter

ABC has ordered 13 episodes of EASTWICK, an hour drama based on the Jack Nicholson movie, for the fall 2009-2010 television season. The show features one-time DAYS OF OUR LIVES castmember Ashley Benson (ex-Abby Devereaux) playing Rebecca Romijn's daughter.

Single-handedly, housewives accomplish astonishing things... and together, watch out. In the seaside village of Eastwick, this might just be evidence of their inner-witch rising to the surface. Until today, Roxanne, Kat and Joanna didn't get along because of their preconceived notions of each other. Roxanne was the flaky artist, Kat was a doormat wife and mom, and Joanna the uptight local reporter. But after a weird encounter in the park coupled with a few margaritas, these three have suddenly become fast friends. Now, a mysterious stranger's arrival in town will bring them even closer and test them in ways they'd never imagined. Daryl Van Horne is an irresistible package of wealth, charisma and bad boy sex appeal. If he's not buying up a local business, he's attempting to seduce one (or all) of these ladies, physically and professionally. What's even more dangerous, he's unleashing their supernatural powers. But by igniting their heart's desires, he might just be opening Pandora's box. This small New England town will be turned upside down by these witches coming into their own. Though bad for a few locals, it's still the best thing to happen in Eastwick in centuries. The X-Files director/producer David Nutter and writer Maggie Friedman (Once and Again) conjure up a devilish blend of Desperate Housewives and Charmed that explores the hidden depths of women. Based on John Updike's celebrated best-seller and the hit movie, Eastwick is brimming with romance, mystery and wicked charm, offering a tempting vision of the ultimate wish-fulfillment fantasy.

Johann Urb as Will

Lindsay Price as Joanna Frankel
Paul Gross as Darryl Van Horne

Thanks for the heads up. I always enjoyed her as Abby Deveraux and was sad to see her go. I knew she was destined to go far though and it looks like things are paying off for her. I look forward to watching this.

Good for her.

Her acting seems to come alive a little more when she plays edgier characters.

Days was foolish for wasting her when they had her, and then letting her go so easily. (And for not continuing to use one of the few remaining Hortons with that temp recast they got for her) Good for her though.
