Trivia

Original plans for the show in the early '00s were to feature 'Paul Rudd' as Henry, Steve Carell as Ron and Jane Lynch but negotiations with networks were unsuccessful at the time. After "Veronica Mars" was canceled, Rob Thomas decided to bring the project back and shoot an unaired pilot at his home with a revised cast. This cast was kept when the show actually went into production, with the exception of Andrea Savage, who played Casey Klein in the unaired pilot, while Lizzy Caplan was cast when the show went into actual production. Savage actually guested on the show's second season, playing a former comedian who befriends Casey and gives her some advice for her career. See more »

TV's Best Kept Sevret
11 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where to even begin. I stumbled upon this when browsing New TV Comedies on Watch Instantly from Netflix and decided to give it a shot. And I am very glad I did. I have burned through all my TV Comedies forty times over. The Office, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, and all of those. This one easily fights for my number one spot of favorite TV Sitcoms. The show doesn't try any quirky gimmicks (which drove me quickly away from watching too much 30 Rock), or anything over the top. The film is based on a Motley Crew of Caterer's of has-beens or aspiring actors who do the dry waiting job while they wait for their big break.

Every character is hilarious and none are annoying. Granted, some will have their episodes where they are the heel, but the writers have a great punishment regiment in each episode which makes you feel like you weren't harassed the entire episode by horrible writing just to create an annoying personality.

The show has enough story to sync them all together and to keep you interested in the chronological history of everything, but not so much that it becomes a drama or a sinking point. The comedy is purely adult with minimal if any at all slapstick. It's namely realistic and witty humors launched from all sides with realistic and sideshow situations.

Over all this show is great for those like me who have exhausted all the better comedy shows out there and need something new and unique. I have never seen a show like this one or sell it like this.
