Vanessa Lachey has been cast as the third and final lead on The First Wives Club, TV Land’s pilot rebooting the 1996 film comedy about a coterie of divorcées seeking vengeance on the husbands who wronged them.

Lachey, perhaps most famous for being married to singer Nick Lachey, joins Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) and Megan Hilty (Smash) in the small-screen adaptation, which is written by New Girl alum Rebecca Addelman and executive produced by Jenny Bicks (Sex and the City).

Lachey will play ‘Sasha, a driven and successful chef in San Francisco. She has it all — a hot restaurant and a great girlfriend whom she plans to marry. But when she reconnects with her old friends after the death of their college roommate, she realizes she may not be as ready to settle down as she thought.’

Hannigan is playing an English professor in a flagging marriage, and Hilty is playing a once-successful actress who’s still chasing stardom while raising a son.

Diane Keaton, Bette Midler, and Goldie Hawn starred in the original First Wives Club, which was itself based on a novel by Olivia Goldsmith.
