NBC has announced some of the pilots that it will not be ordering to series this fall -- releasing actors and writers from their contracts.

Kate Lang Johnson (Fired Up) is set as a lead opposite Chyler Leigh and Humphrey Ker in NBC’s comedy pilot Holding Patterns, from writer Justin Spitzer, Tbd Prods and Universal TV. It is an ensemble multi-camera comedy about a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash, caused by Leah (Leigh) ruining Griffin’s (Ker) proposal dinner.
