Jane by Design Sneak Peeks: Billy and Jane are Fighting and India's Replacement is Named

The spring finale of Jane by Design raised as many questions as it answered. Though someone from Jane's personal life finally found out about her career and Billy confessed his feelings for his bestie, India's firing, the sudden appearance of Jeremy, and Billy's arrest left several plates spinning heading into the summer run of episodes. How would Donovan Decker replace India? Would Billy and Jane be the same after all that happened? It looks like Jane may be taking on more responsibility at work, as Gray is eyeing her to replace India. It'd be a pretty substantial leap forward for the young fashionista, though you have to wonder if she's ready, in terms of actual ability and mental state. Jane has a natural aptitude for fashion and has grown comfortable in the working world, but with her increasingly stressful personal life and lack of experience in the field, can she really handle the promotion? Plus, you know that if India gets word that the girl that got her fired replaced her at Donovan Decker, you know that there'll be hell to pay. Read More... //

First Look: Teri Hatcher Goes From Housewife To Hippie

Just over a month since escaping Desperate Housewives ' Wisteria Lane, Teri Hatcher is setting down new roots as the estranged mom of teen designer Jane Quimby ( Erica Dasher ) on ABC Family's Jane by Design .

Jane by Design: Spoilers for the Mid-season Premiere

The second half of Jane by Design 's first season is looking to up the ante that much more from its first set of episodes. Now, Ben knows about Jane's time at Donovan Decker, Billy has to deal with time in jail (and his feelings for Jane), and Jane must continue her forward movement in the company without anybody finding out her true identity, all the while choosing between Billy, Nick, and Jeremy. It's a completely different type of life than Jane envisioned once she took the job at Donovan Decker, extraordinarily chaotic and filled to the brim with activity, but something tells me that we'll see her really settle in during the upcoming run of episodes. She's always loved fashion, but it took a few episodes for her to grow into her role at Donovan Decker. With a little experience under her (fabulous) belt and India out of the way, for now, Jane's comfort level could rise pretty rapidly, but will she still remember who she is upon achieving even more success? Listed below are the dates, initial airings, episode names, and episode descriptions for  Jane by Design 's first two episodes back, where it looks like Jane may be close to forgetting her roots.

TV Beauty Teri Hatcher to Make Directorial Debut on ‘Jane By Design’

Actress Teri Hatcher , best known for her roles on ‘ Desperate Housewives ’ and ‘Lois & Clark: The New Adventures  of Superman’, will make  her directorial debut on the new ABC Family series  Jane By Design this summer. Not only that, but she will appear in a four-episode arc on the series that follows Jane Quimby (newcomer Erica Dasher), a quirky teen with an eclectic chic fashion sense, who lands a job at a hip fashion  house when they mistake her for an adult. Torn between her love of fashion and the need to finish high school, Jane conceals her true age to assist the demanding, but talented creative director Gray Chandler Murray (Andie MacDowell).

Jane By Design: New Summer Promo

At the end of last week's spring finale of  Jane By Design , Jane may have gotten caught by someone from Donovan Decker. Jeremy came back onto the runway to see Billy in the middle of confessing his love for Jane, so I'm not sure if she can wriggle her way out of another compromising position. Poor Jane, once lamenting how invisible she felt in high school, now can't seem to get people to look away. In the new promo for Jane By Design 's upcoming summer episodes, the choice that Jane faces takes center stage, with her old life (Billy) and new life (Jeremy) doing battle for Jane's attention once again. The show backed away from having Jeremy pursue Jane after some early flirtation, but he poured his heart out to her in the finale, telling her how inspired she made him through her enthusiasm for fashion. Jane may have been able to talk Ben into letting her keep her job, but nobody from Donovan Decker knows about her "other life" and I don't know how close Jane is willing to let them get to finding out her true identity.

'Jane By Design' midseason finale: Are Jane and Billy meant to be?

Since high-schooler Jane Quimby has been living a double life as a fashion assistant all season long, it makes sense that the midseason finale of "Jane By Design" will see our heroine risk exposure in both of her worlds.Here's what's happening in the episode, according to ABC Family's official description: "Now that Ben is onto Jane's secret, her dream job looks like it could be coming to an end quickly. But with Fashion Week finally here, Gray and the Donovan Decker team are counting on her more than ever - especially when the mole rears their ugly head again. How can Jane let everyone down and let go of her dream? But if she goes, how would she be able to explain herself to Ben? This is one fashion problem that doesn't have a quick fix. Meanwhile, Billy must pay the price for getting caught up in Tommy's plan."All well and good, but let's get... //
