Jessica “Jess Hilarious” Moore has officially joined the cast of Fox comedy pilot Rel.  Moore will star as the female lead star opposite Lil Rel Howery in the upcoming Fox comedy that will be exec produced by Jerrod Carmichael and Mike Scully

Moore replaces Angel Laketa Moore, who had been originally cast in the role.

Written/executive produced by Josh Rabinowitz & Kevin Barnett and Howery, and inspired by Howery’s real life, Rel, from 20th Century Fox TV, centers on Lil Rel (Howery), a prideful, self-made success who lives by the code to “always believe in yourself and great things will come.” Rel finds that attitude put to the test when he learns his wife is having an affair with his own barber. He tries to rebuild his life post-divorce as a long-distance single father on the West Side of Chicago who’s on a quest for love, respect and a new barber.

Moore will play Tiffany, Rel’s supportive, kind and driven best friend.

Moore is a comedian and an actress who is known for her viral online comedic videos that have garnered hundreds of thousands of views on Instagram, and has appeared in shows such as Wild ‘n Out and All Def Comedy.
