Anna Faris has joined the ranks of big-screen talent taking on small-screen projects.

"The House Bunny" and "Scary Movie 4" star Faris has been cast to star in "Mom," the CBS pilot from "Two and a Half Men" and "The Big Bang Theory" executive producer Chuck Lorre, individuals familiar with the situation told TheWrap on Friday.

Faris will play a newly sober single mom who attempts to pull her life together in California's Napa Valley. (Which could pose a problem, given the region's prodigious wine output.) The half-hour, multi-camera comedy, which has received a pilot production order from a spec script, is executive-produced by Lorre and Eddie Gorodetsky (who's served as a producer on "The Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men"). The pair are also writing, along with Gemma Baker ("Two and a Half Men"). Baker is also a producer on the project.
