Undateable Has Officially Been Picked Up
StandUpTalk Favorites, Rick Glassman, Brent Morin, and Chris D’Elia are on the show!
NBC has kicked off the second day of new series pickups with an order to the Bill Lawrence-produced comedy Undateable, written by Adam Sztykiel. It stars Chris D’Elia, who became officially available yesterday when NBC cancelled Whitney. This marks the second pickup for Lawrence, who also is producing new Fox comedy series Surviving Jack, and the second new series at NBC for Warner Bros., which also has J.J. Abrams’ Believe.
Here are the network’s descriptions of the new series:
When confident slacker Danny Beeman (Chris D’Elia, “Whitney,” ”Glory Daze”) takes Justin (comedian Brent Morin) on as a roommate, Danny unwittingly inherits Justin’s group of romantically challenged friends. Seeing himself as the ultimate player, Danny decides to teach the crew (who he dubs “The Undateables”) everything he knows about “the game of love.” For their first lesson, Danny takes the guys to an event hosted by his sister, Leslie (Bianca Kajlich, “Rules of Engagement”), who is a single mom with dating difficulties of her own. At first, Danny’s advice seems to pay off big-time: The shy guy talks to a girl, the no-filter dude learns it’s never OK to ask a woman when she’s due, and his nebbish roommate, Justin, goes home with a mystery woman. It’s not until the next day that they figure out it was Leslie! Talk about a bunch who just can’t get lucky! From the executive producers of “Cougar Town” comes a hilarious new comedy about the “do’s,” “don’ts” and “duhs” of dating. From Emmy-nominated executive producer Bill Lawrence (“Scrubs,” “Cougar Town”), Jeff Ingold and executive producer/writer Adam Sztykiel (“Due Date”) “Undateable” is a production of Warner Bros. Television and Doozer Productions. Scott Ellis (“Guys with Kids”) directs the pilot episode.
