Joanna Garcia Joins Justin Kirk’s NBC Comedy

25 May 2012 7:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Joanna Garcia has joined the cast of Animal Practice, NBC's upcoming vet-set single-camera comedy that stars Justin Kirk and a monkey. You know, that one. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Garcia will replace Amy Huberman, one of NBC's many abrasive blonds of pilot season. Garcia's had a string of one-season shows — Welcome to the Captain, Privileged, Better With You — and her most recent pilot, Oh Fuck, It's You, didn't get picked up. Somewhere, Paula Marshall is passing a torch. »

CBS Greenlights Nick Stoller Comedy Pilot

18 January 2012 5:17 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

CBS has given the pilot green light to a comedy from feature writer-director Nick Stoller (The Muppets), Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV. Stoller wrote and will direct the untitled project loosely based on his real-life experiences. It is a twenty-something ensemble comedy about a guy who gets his heart broken by his girlfriend and now has to work one cubicle away from her at an ad agency. Stoller, Katherine Pope and Peter Chernin are executive producing. This is a rare venturing into single-camera comedy for CBS, which has built its comedy success on multi-camera sitcoms. Its very few single-camera series, including Worst Week and Welcome To The Captain, have fizzled. UTA-repped Stoller, who started off on Undeclared, is a frequent collaborator with Jason Segel, star of CBS’ long-running comedy How I Met Your Mother. The two co-wrote The Muppets, and Stoller directed the Segel-penned Forgetting Sarah Marshall. This »
