Brett Gelman & Jenny Slate cast in FX pilot


Deadline June 12, 2013
FX Pilot Castings: Lauren Lee Smith In ‘The Strain’; Brett Gelman, Jenny Slate In Gurland
by Nellie Andreeva

EXCLUSIVE: Brett Gelman (Go On) and Jenny Slate (SNL) have joined FX‘s untitled Andrew Gurland comedy pilot, about the lengths to which two best friends are willing to go to salvage their marriage. Lina Bowman (Judy Greer) and her husband Russ Bowman (Nat Faxon) get along great in every room except the bedroom. In order to save their otherwise great marriage and family, Lina gives her husband permission to take care of his needs elsewhere. Gelman, repped by CAA, Mosaic and Isaac Donham, will play Russ’ close friend AJ, an intense, recently divorced guy. Slate will play Russ’ best friend Jess, a petite ex-party girl who is now married to a much older guy. Gurland, who wrote the script, will also direct and executive produce alongside Paul Young and Peter Principato.
