Things are rosy for Mimi Davila.
The 31-year-old Cuban-Bulgarian actress, comedian and writer will star in opposite Sarah Michelle Gellar in Hot Pink, a biting coming-of-age comedy pilot for Amazon created by Elisabeth Holm.
Davila joins a roster of cast newcomers that includes Nina Bloomgarden, David Iacono, Dana Donnelly and Myra Molloy.
Character details are being kept under wraps.
Hot Pink, from Amazon Studios in association with Annapurna Pictures, was loosely inspired by Elana K. Arnold’s National Book Award finalist What Girls Are Made Of.
If ordered to series, Hot Pink would join Amazon Studios’ growing YA series slate, which includes The Wilds, already renewed for a second season, and the upcoming Panic.
Published in 2017, Arnold’s What Girls Are Made Of is described as exploring “the real, knotted, messy, thriving heartbeat of young womanhood” through the eyes of a 16-year-old girl.
Davila is best known for creating the comedic web series The Chonga Diaries and viral song parody “Chongalicious,” which she created as one half of the duo The Chonga Girls.
As an actress she played a supporting role in the feature film Embattled and recurred on Adam Ruins Everything and South Beach.
She’s currently in development on 2Nite with the Chonga Girls, an innovative talk show.
