Lindsey Gort has signed on to the cast of SELF PROMOTION. The MTV dark comedy follows Katie (Alexandra Krosney), an overworked executive’s assistant who takes over for her hard-driving boss after she is mysteriously never heard from again. Gort will play Tess, the assistant to the Managing Editor of the website and nemesis to Katie. Zach Braff (Scrubs) is directing the pilot.
Gort was previously featured in recently-cancelled The Carries Diaries, the CW’s prequel to Sex and the City. The series starred AnnaSophia Robb as a younger Carrie Bradshaw and followed her junior year of high school in the early 1980s. The show ran for two seasons and Gort played the younger version of Samantha Jones, one of the women who would become Carrie’s life-long friends.
