As first reported by TVLine, Michalka has taken over the role played in the pilot by Alexandra Krosney (“Last Man Standing”). The recasting was announced shortly after The CW picked up the comic-book-based show for midseason.
The show is the story of Liv (Rose McIver), a medical student whose unfortunate transition to zombiedom has her working in a morgue and confusing family and friends. Despite sharing an apartment with Liv, Peyton may remain in the dark about her best friend’s undead status.
In addition to the lead role in “Hellcats,” Michalka has appeared on “Two and a Half Men,” “CSI: New York” and “Breaking In.”
