Moving on from vampires and supernatural teen drama, Dobrev's next role will be a multi-camera comedy series called Fam about a woman named Clem (Dobrev) who lets her younger half-sister Shannon (Odessa Adlon) live with her and her fiancé to escape their disaster of a dad, Deadline reports.

Dobrev will serve as the series lead and her character is described as funny, quick-witted and outspoken, and someone who's worked hard to get her life on track and become the best version of herself after a wild youth.
