Cabral joins a roster of new series regular cast additions that includes half-Honduran American actress Chloe Bridges, Nichole Sakura and Kerri Kenney.

The project hails from Maggie Mull, daughter of actor Martin Mull, and Justin Adler. 20th Television produces. Natalia Anderson has been tapped to direct the pilot.

In addition to Rittenhouse, Sakura, Cabral, Bridges and Kenney join previously announced series regulars David Del Rio, Chris Elliott, Ray Ford and Leonardo Nam.

Written by Mull and Adler and directed by Anderson, the single-camera comedy follows a young woman (Rittenhouse) who tries to cope with life while coming to terms with her abilities as a psychic. She can see everyone’s future, but her present is a mess.

Sakura plays Louise, Maggie’s best friend since childhood. She is funny, single and ready to mingle, all the time. But make no mistake, Louise gets knocked down repeatedly and somehow she will always get right back up with an even better attitude, full of hope and belief that her life is going to somehow work out.

Cabral will play Amy, Ben’s (Del Rio) older sister. She’s basically the world’s most uptight hippie. A vegan baker who is all about ethical living and sustainable cooking, Amy’s found herself more caught up in the social media pressures of being a food Instagram star promoting that idea than actually helping the world.

Bridges will portray Jessie, Ben’s (Del Rio) girlfriend and Maggie’s (Rittenhouse) neighbor in the duplex. She’s friendly without seeming inauthentic, full of natural kindness and warmth.

Cabral’s credits include the series regular role of Colleen on the CBS’ comedy series Life In Pieces, the female lead on the Fox comedy series Enlisted, co-starring in the Amazon animated series Undone, co-starring in the indie film Band Aid, and recurring on Grace and Frankie for Netflix.

Bridges is best known for her role of Donna LaDonna in the CW’s The Carrie Diaries and her role as Sydney Driscoll in Pretty Little Liars. She most recently appeared in the recurring roles of Paloma on ABC’s Schooled, Tessa on the CW’s Charmed, and Roxy on Netflix’s Insatiable.

He is being cast as a guest star as he is in second position to Cougar Town, the way Stults and Young are to Enlisted, making Cuz-Bros a rare pilot where most of the primary cast are formally tied to other shows.

Cabral’s New Fox Series “Enlisted” Premieres This Week

Angelique Cabral is reporting for duty this coming week…

Fox will launch the 34-year-old part-Latina actress’ new midseason series Enlisted on January 10.

Angelique Cabral

The heartwarming Army-set sitcom centers on three brothers in a unit of misfits on an Army base in Florida. Along with Cabral, the series stars Geoff Stults (The Finder), Chris Lowell (Veronica Mars), Keith David (Platoon) and Parker Young (Suburgatory).

Cabral portrays Sgt. Jill Perez, the leader of another unit on the base — and the only main female character in a series that’s “all dudes,” as she tells the Monterey Herald.

“It’s like a dream role, because this woman is not the pretty girlfriend, or the pregnant wife,” said Cabral. “She’s a sergeant in the Army. She’s her own boss, she’s tough as nails, she’s got a chip on her shoulder, she’s hardcore. It’s a really fun character for me to play.”

But Sgt. Perez is more than that, according to her Enlisted costars.

”Angelique’s character, Jill, has developed, in a weird way, into the fourth Hill Brother,” Stults tells TV Guide magazine, adding, “Man, she’s not going to like that!”

Cabral agrees with her co-star’s assessment.

“Jill kind of adopts the boys. Much like in my real life, she has FOMO – Fear Of Missing Out – so she’s constantly around their platoon, even though she has her own,” teases Cabral, who wed her longtime love last summer.

Cabral’s previous credits include Don’t Trust The B— in Apartment 23, The Glades, Happy Endings and Free Agents.

Enlisted premieres on Friday, January 10 at 9:30 pm ET.
