A CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY GIVES A HIGH SCHOOL FASHIONISTA A HIGH FASHION CAREER IN THE NEW ABC FAMILY ORIGINAL SERIES "JANE BY DESIGN," PREMIERING JANUARY 3RD AT 9:00PM ET/PT

Andie MacDowell ("Four Weddings and a Funeral") Stars as Jane's Demanding, Fashion Executive Boss

Burbank, CA (November 17, 2011) - Jane Quimby is a fresh-faced fashionista juggling life both as a regular high school student and as an assistant to a high-powered fashion executive -- all while trying to keep her true identity a secret -- in the series premiere of ABC Family's new original series "Jane By Design" on Tuesday, January 3rd (9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT). The one-hour original drama stars newcomer Erica Dasher, David Clayton Rogers ("Cougar Town"), Nicholas Roux ("Lemonade Mouth"), Rowly Dennis ("Desperate Housewives"), India De Beaufort ("One Tree Hill"), Meagan Tandy ("10 Things I Hate About You"), Matthew Atkinson ("CSI") and featuring Andie MacDowell ("Footloose," "Four Weddings and a Funeral").

"Jane By Design" follows Jane Quimby (Dasher), a quirky teen with an eclectic chic fashion sense, who lands a job at a hip fashion house when they mistake her for an adult. Torn between her love of fashion and the need to finish high school, Jane conceals her true age to assist the demanding, but talented Gray Chandler Murray (MacDowell), who travels the world in search of the next big style trend. Jane quickly learns that working for a successful executive in the cutthroat world of fashion brings on adversaries like India Jourdain (De Beaufort), an associate designer and Gray's former assistant, who is now gunning for Gray's job. Fortunately, Jane has the charming and handsome senior designer Jeremy Jones (Dennis) on her side -- and peaking her interest -- although she still harbors feelings for long-time crush, Nick Fadden (Atkinson), at school.

Jane's best friend, Billy Nutter (Roux), helps Jane keep up appearances as she toggles between two lives and loyally guards her secret from her older brother, Ben (Rogers). However, Billy has a secret of his own, hiding a relationship with Jane's high school nemesis, Lulu Pope (Tandy). Even with Billy's support, will Jane's ruse be a passing fad, or will she be able to fashion a career in the design business?

The series is executive produced by Gavin Polone ("Gilmore Girls," "Curb Your Enthusiasm"), April Blair ("Lemonade Mouth," "Monte Carlo") and John Ziffren ("Melissa & Joey," "Make It or Break It").
