The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev Returns to TV in New Comedy”

The Vampire Diaries alum will be coming back to the small screen but not in a supernatural romance drama but in a comedy show. She, however, returned to record a voiceover of her character, Elena Gilbert, for TVD Season 7 finale. Her film credits include XXX: Return of Xander Cage, Flatliners, Crashpad and the upcoming indies Dog Days, Departures and Lucky Day.

Dobrev has landed the lead role of Clem in Fam, a multi-camera sitcom being developed by CBS. Shannon will come to live with Clem and her fiancé to escape their dysfunctional father.

According to Deadline, Dobrev's Clem is "grounded, deeply amusing, quick-witted and outspoken". The show centers on a young woman (Dobrev) who gets engaged to the man of her dreams and gets welcomed into his sophisticated family, but things go south when her trainwreck younger sister shows up. While she may have been a hot mess in her younger years, Clem has worked hard to become her "best self" since then. In a bid to be the best version of herself, she claims that her estranged father, Freddy Banks, is dead when he is very much alive. She is a real charmer who is ecstatic when Jay, the love of her life, proposes. And that lie just might end her relationship with Jay for good. Scott Ellis is directing the pilot.

Fam also stars Odessa Adlon as Clem's disastrous younger sister and Tony victor Brian Stokes Mitchell as her successful future father-in-law. For each of the past two years, CBS has ordered four new comedy pilots to series.
