2015 is off to a good start for Chappaqua’s Vanessa Williams.
Weeks after filming “The Mindy Project,” the actress has announced that she will star opposite Kevin Connolly in the Fox pilot “Fantasy Life.” According to Deadline, the “Desperate Housewives” alum will play the SVP of Programming at a major sports network.
“Back to the TV screen again,” she tweeted Thursday. “This time in a pilot w/ @mrkevinconnolly this spring. Will keep u posted how it goes.’
No word yet on where “Fantasy Life” will be filmed, but we’re guessing Williams, a lifelong Westchester resident, might want to stay on the East Coast. The engaged star is reportedly planning to get married this summer in Buffalo, where her businessman beau lives.
