NBC’s single-camera comedy The Gates has recast two regular roles following Wednesday’s table read. Ally McBeal alum Greg Germann and Ben & Kate co-star Echo Kellum are joining the pilot, replacing Aasif Mandvi and Justin Chon, respectively. Germann was cast as a regular, while Kellum is a guest star. Based on the British series, The Gates is an adult ensemble comedy set at the front gates of an elementary school drop-off and revolves around the parents, school staff and 15-minute social minefield they navigate at the beginning and end of each school day. The show centers on type-a Helen (Kathleen Rose Perkins), who just moved to town with her husband Mark (Ken Marino) and their 8-year-old daughter for Helen’s big new job. Germann will play another dad at the school, a super-driven, competitive Yale-educated lawyer who’s one of these comedically intense guys who pushes his kids way too hard. »
