The Inside's Leading Lady. Oh, my. Rachel Nichols is starring in Tim Minear's new series, The Inside. May not be work safe, click in the privacy of your own home.

I swear I wasn't looking at porn and stumbled across this. This was the first site that popped up on Google when I looked her up.

Well, "The Inside" sounds like an appropriate title!
She makes me want to kiss girls.
Allyson, your comment made me flash on Willow saying, "Kiss rocks? Why whould anyone want to kiss rocks? Oh, I get it..."!
I'll have to get my stalkin' boots on. Good job I know where the studio is. About eight thousand miles from where I am now....
She's cute, I hope she can act too. Heres her acting credits.

Thanks for the URL, eddy. I had to go look her up to be sure she wasn't the 15 year old she looks to be!
Anyone know what the plot to The Inside is?
Here's what I found on the plot, I suppose some of the following might be considered spoilers.

From Fox's website:

THE INSIDE: At first glance, DANNY ROBERTS (RACHEL NICHOLS, “Dumb & Dumberer”) seems to be the quintessential American teenager, dating the quarterback at a suburban high school. Only a few know her secret: Danny is not really a high school student, but a 22-year-old federal agent working undercover. Helping Danny – who is actually Agent ELIZABETH WORTH – maintain her cover is Agent SEAN ECKHARDT (PETER FACINELLI, “Fastlane”). In the pilot episode, Danny/Elizabeth’s drug investigation is sidetracked when her high school “boyfriend” is murdered. She must confront the pressures of getting personally involved in the lives of her classmates, while working to solve the murder and put the drug investigation back on track – all without blowing her cover. Over the course of the series, Danny’s assignments will vary, but she always faces the unique challenges of going undercover to solve crimes.
^yeah, or a channel or release date?
Why don't you do a bit of research yourself, MySerenity?

And thank you, WindtheFrog, for the information. :)
sr bout that, I posted in response to Gonnas who asked about the plot and posted at the same time as WindTheFrog. I was adding to Gonnas and not the one that it looks like.
here's a link:

its gonna start in January of next year, a 1-hour show on FOX which is gonna be shown Friday's @ 8
I always think that no one would ever believe a 22 year old could be seventeen or whatever but there was a case here a few years ago of someone in their early thirties who enroled back at his old school because he wanted some extra qualifications! He passed for a high school kid for about a year...
If this show airs Fridays at 8 I won't be able watch it because there is no way I'm missing Joan of Arcadia.
I don't watch the show, but doesn't the above description fit Alias fairly well? Except in high school instead of college?

An attractive female blonde lead, a high school, and an undercover agent are three things that make me fairly nervous these days. You know, one of the reasons Buffy was a big hit was because it was different, and yet so many shows seem to be copying it these days. Of course, Minear hasn't let me down yet (in regards to working on a great show and then it being cancelled) so I remain hopeful.

Really I'm just bitter about Wonderfalls.

In the first season of Alias, Sydney went to college. She was not going undercover in college, however, she was seriously working on a degree so she could someday leave the CIA.

The Inside sounds like a generic concept (21 Jump Street with a female lead) but it all depends on how it's written.

Fridays at 8? Geez. Tim just can't get out of that death slot, can he?
The Inside has been delayed. They are just recasting the new pilot now. It won't be airing in January, and who knows what timeslot Fox will place it in. Probably a Friday time-slot-of-death, but the schedule for January on is completely out of date.
Are they recasting the girl?
They're keeping the girl, Peter Facinelli, and the title. The show no longer takes place in a high school. It's nothing resembling 21 Jump Street. This one if more like Silence of the Lambs.

If you join the mailing list at Tim's Site you'll be notified when there's a Q&A with Tim to discuss the new premise and other stuff.
Shame. That was the best excuse for a twentysomething lead in a high school series ever. :D
Basically if it wasnt for Rachel Nichols and Peter Facinelli Fox would have never picked the show up. Fox felt that the two were genuine break out stars, but although they had them under contract, it was only for a show called the "Inside". Tim Minear was also under contract, so Fox fired the orgional creators, and got Tim to write a new show called the inside (prolly with some directives).
