Candie’s Girls have had to be women of many talents in the past. They sing, they dance, they act, they pose precariously in high-heeled shoes. But until now, they’ve only been in front of the camera for the brand. Sarah Hyland is changing that.
The Modern Family actress has been tapped to be the brand’s first ever Creative Director, signing on to not only star in its ad campaigns (which will first come out in late summer) but to style them as well. And kicking off in Spring 2017, she’ll also lend her design sensibility to the brand, helping add her own personal style to the collection.
Hyland follows in the footsteps of recent Candie’s Girls including Vanessa Hudgens and Carly Rae Jepsen, and the girls who walked ahead of her were a big factor in taking her new gig. “I grew up looking at Candie’s ads and hearing my friends’ experiences as Candie’s girls, but the added influence of being named the first Creative Director is really exciting for me,” she said in a statement. “I love fashion, it’s a part of who I am.”

Returning for additional seasons are America’s Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, Black-ish, Dancing With the Stars, Fresh Off the Boat, The Goldbergs, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder, Agents of SHIELD, The Middle, Modern Family, Once Upon a Time, Scandal, Shark Tank and Quantico.
The renewals mark Dungey’s first official duties as head of the network and come after Lee historically waited until the Friday before upfronts in May to announce both returning shows as well as his new series pickups. Perhaps what’s more interesting is that amid a landscape of more vertically aligned networks and studios, Dungey’s early renewals include multiple series from outside studios including Sony Pictures Television (The Goldbergs), 20th Century Fox Television (Modern Family, Fresh Off the Boat) and Warner Bros. Television (The Middle).
Now entering its eighth, season, Modern Family has seen better days, but the five-time Emmy winner still continues to be one of the network’s biggest draws — and one of the most successful comedies on network television, only second to The Big Bang Theory. Produced by outside studio 20th Century Fox Television, the ensemble comedy is one of ABC’s more costly entries and many within the industry see the series nearing its endpoint. Subsequently, family comedies have been hot this pilot season as the Big 4 look to find the heir to the Modern Family throne.
Sarah Hyland will play Lisa Houseman in ABC’s upcoming Dirty Dancing remake, EW has confirmed.
Lisa is Baby’s extroverted older sister, a role originated in the 1987 film by Jane Brucker. While vacationing with her family in the Catskills at the Kellerman’s resort, Lisa gets cheated on by a womanizing waiter.
An air date has not yet been set for the televised musical event, but casting news has been coming out fast and furious as the project comes together. Nicole Scherzinger has been cast as Penny, Debra Messing as the Houseman matriarch, Colt Prattes as Johnny, and, of course, Abigail Breslin will portray Frances “Baby” Houseman.
