Melissa Joan Hart is known for playing teens on television, but the 33-year-old actress might be playing an adult if a pilot she’s making gets picked up.

“I’m going to be doing a new pilot with Joey Lawrence,” Melissa told Access Hollywood of the potential ABC Family show. “Hopefully it’ll go to series.”

Melissa revealed the show is currently untitled, but as for her character, she is very far removed from the actress’ days on “Clarissa Explains It All” or “Sabrina The Teenage Witch.”

“It’s going to be a fun little sassy character for me,” she said. “It’s going be different ‘cause I get to play a little bit more of a grown-up, a politician, kind of a bad girl politician.”

In the meantime, Melissa is gearing up for another week on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Melissa and her professional partner, Mark Ballas, made it through another round of competition on Tuesday night.
