iCarly alumna Miranda Cosgrove has been cast as a lead opposite Christina Ricci in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot Girlfriend In A Coma, from Wolf Films and Universal TV. Written by Nurse Jackie‘s Liz Brixius based on Douglas Coupland’s book, it centers on Karen (Ricci), a woman who was in a coma for many years and unexpectedly comes out of the coma to find she has a 17-year-old daughter, Evie (Cosgrove). Evie is a small-town, overachieving loner whose world is turned upside down when her mom wakes up, and every hope she ever had of keeping her nose to the grindstone, saving money, and getting grades for an out-of-state college is thrown out the window. Cosgrove, who has Despicable Me 2 coming out July 3, is with Wme and Anonymous Content. British actor Humphrey Kerr has been cast as one of the leads in another NBC comedy pilot, Justin Spitzer’s Holding Patterns, »
