“Smart Cookies” is shooting in Vancouver and will air in the fall. Exec producers are Jack Grossbart, Linda Kent and Harvey Kahn.

Gilsig, who had roles in “Nip Tuck” and “Friday Night Lights,” more recently starred for two seasons on Fox dramedy “Glee.” Richardson is best known for playing Tim Allen’s wife on the longtime ABC hit “Home Improvement.”
