Courteney Cox’s Assistant Cast in Fox Comedy Pilot ‘Charity Case’

Diona Reasonover has been cast in “Charity Case,” Courteney Cox’s Fox pilot, Variety has learned exclusively. She will play Cox’s on-screen assistant in the comedy.

Charity Case” revolves around Hailey (Cox), who inherits her late billionaire husband’s charity but quickly finds that changing the world is far less glamorous than she had imagined.

Reasonover will play Kara, Hailey’s new assistant at the charity foundation’s headquarters. The character is described as upbeat, idealistic to a fault and thrilled to have landed the job, but she’s in for a rude shock after getting to see Hailey up close and personal.

“Charity Case” also stars Kyle Bornheimer, Isiah Whitlock, Jr. and Dan Gill. Cox will pull double duty as an exec producer, along with writer Robert Padnick, who penned the pilot and James Griffiths, who is set to direct. ABC Studios and 20th Century Fox are producing.

Reasonover most recently starred in TBS comedy “Clipped.” The writer-actress is currently a staff writer on TruTV’s sketch comedy series “Adam Ruins Everything.” She is repped by Principato-Young Entertainment and Michael Auerbach of Jackoway Tyerman.
