Emily Head is hoping to crack America.

The 'Inbetweeners' actress - who portrayed Carli D'Amato in the British sitcom - has filmed a pilot for new US show 'Rita', and she is hoping the programme will boost her acting career in the country.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the UK premiere of 'Much Ado About Nothing' at London's Apollo Theatre, she said: ''I have just shot a pilot for an American series, so now I'm just waiting to see if it goes anywhere.

''It stars Anna Gunn, it's called 'Rita'. It's about her, she's a private school teacher, and her family. I play her daughter.''

Rita, a struggling mum-of-three, is dealing with the mindless bureaucracy and the over-protective parents at her school in the scripted Bravo drama, which has been written by Krista Vernoff and directed by Miguel Arteta.

While the 24-year-old star has been busy in the US working on her career, she still finds time to meet up with her 'Inbetweeners' co-stars.

She continued: ''I see a lot of Blake [Harrison], mainly because he lives in central London. I try to see them as much as I can.''
