Emily Osment has just landed a lead role on a new ABC Family pilot.

The “Hannah Montana” alum has been cast in the new multi-camera comedy “Young & Hungry,” Deadline reports. The new series is executive produced by another former Disney Channel star, “High School Musical’s” Ashley Tisdale.

“Young & Hungry” centers on Gabi (Osment), a feisty young blogger hired as the personal chef to a young San Francisco tech entrepreneur. Not the typical polished chef, Gabi is blunt and klutzy and has an outrageous sense of style. But not only does she have a a true gift for cooking, she has the ability to figure out what it is people want to eat.
