Former Days of Our Lives (ex-Stephanie Johnson) and Teen Wolf star Shelley Hennig will be channeling her soap roots. According to Deadline, Hennig will be one of the leads in ABC’s comedic soap pilot False Profits, a show about the multi-level marketing cosmetic business.

Reportedly, she will portray Hilary Jenkel, who is described as “a sharp-tongued, hot-tempered former beauty queen whose glory days were cut short by a nasty drug habit. Now in recovery and single mother of 6 year-old Lila, Hilary hopes to reignite the flame between her and Clark, Lila’s father. But when he sues for full custody of their daughter, Hilary needs to whip her life and bank account into shape. She joins her co-workers in a direct-sales cosmetics business, using her pageant know-how as the underdog’s team secret sales weapon.”

Hennig won the Miss Teen USA title in 2004.
