Mario Lopez, hot off his stint on ABC's Dancing With the Stars, will costar with R&B; singer Christina Milian in the CW comedy pilot Eight Days a Week.

The project revolves around four 20-somethings who work under the top movers and shakers in New York.

Lopez will play one of the bosses, an impeccably dressed wunderkind with a cell phone attached to his ear. Milian will play one of the assistants, a beautiful, young woman who left behind a law career to start over as a receptionist/gofer at an art gallery.

Additionally, Johnny Lewis will play another assistant, a struggling rock musician who works for a big-name rock-band publicist. Robert Ri'chard will play Lopez's character's assistant, a BlackBerry-wielding go-getter.

Lopez recently joined entertainment newsmagazine Extra as cohost/correspondent and hosted the 2007 Miss America Pageant. Milian has appeared in such features as Torque, Man of the House, and Be Cool.
