Shooting starting this week in Los Angeles

Vanessa Marano, star of ABC Family’s “Switched at Birth,” has come on board to topline high school comedy ensemble “Senior Project,” which begins shooting this week in Los Angeles.

The film is produced by Fabienne Wen and co-produced by her daughter Ellie Wen ( “White Frog”) through their new banner Itsy Bitsy Productions. Stephane Gauger and Yaron Kaplan are also producing.

Nadine Truong (“Someone I Used to Know”) is directing.

Fabienne Wen discovered the script by 16-year-old Jeremy Lin through a writers workshop in Hong Kong this year and fast tracked production on the company’s slate.

Marano (pictured above) stars with Katie Leclerc in “Switched at Birth.” ABC Family ordered a third season in July.

Marano is represented by Paradigm and Marano Entertainment.
