Ali Larter to Star in Fox Cheerleader Comedy Developed by Ben Stiller

Ali Larter to Star in Fox Cheerleader Comedy Developed by Ben Stiller
"Heroes" and "Final Destination" actress Ali Larter has signed on to star in and executive produce the single-camera comedy series "The Sidelines" for Fox. Ben Stiller will also executive produce via his Red Hour Films.

Larter will star as a newly separated mother of two who, at age 40, decides to achieve her lifelong dream of becoming a professional cheerleader. Against all odds, she makes the squad for a local Detroit football team and becomes the accidental den mother to this group of scrappy, resilient young women – and rediscovers herself in the process.

The series, which has received a script commitment, will be written by Kate Gersten ("The Good Place", "Mozart in the Jungle"). Laura Vikmanis, author of "It's Not About the Pom-Poms: How a 40-Year-Old Mom Became the NFL's Oldest Cheerleader–and Found Hope, Joy, and Inspiration Along the Way" will serve as a consulting producer.

Larter currently recurs on ABC's "The Rookie". She recently finished work on the indie western "The Last Victim" which stars Ron Perlman.
