Indian American actress Punam Patel, currently seen on truTV’s comedy series, “Adam Ruins Everything,” has landed another regular role on Freeform’s single-camera comedy pilot from writer Shawn Wines and Kapital Entertainment, “Now & Then.”

Deadline reports that “Now & Then” follows a group of old college friends who, having lost touch over the years, are brought back together unexpectedly for one wild night only to be given a new lease on life and friendship. Reuniting as friends gives them the opportunity to discover who they always promised each other they would be.

Patel, according to the publication, portrays Sarah, a witty and sarcastic science major-turned-researcher who is bored with her mundane life, but reuniting with her old pals just might re-invigorate her and send her on a different path.

The Florida native, currently featuring on Pop TV’s original scripted comedy series, “Return of the Mac,” is also known for her series regular role of Patti on ABC Family’s workplace comedy, “Kevin From Work.”

Before coming to Los Angeles, Patel was a resident ensemble member at Chicago’s Second City Theatre, where Patel starred in and wrote critically-acclaimed shows such as “Apes of Wrath” and “A Clown Car Named Desire.”
