Eric Andre Cast in Greg Daniels’s NBC Pilot
Eric Andre, star of ABC’s now-canceled Don’t Trust the B and Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show, has a booked a regular role on another network sitcom. Deadline reports that Andre has been cast as one of the lead characters in an untitled NBC pilot produced by The Office/Parks and Rec/King of the Hill mastermind Greg Daniels and created by Office writer Robert Padnick. This is one of two pilots Greg Daniels has in contention for fall of 2013; the other stars Craig Robinson.
The pilot follows four 20somethings navigating the dating world in a big city. Andre plays Teddy, “who is crass with zero social filter.” The other leads are a nice guy who was recently dumped named Hirsch (played by stand-up Josh Rabinowitz), Maggie (Californication‘s Ellen Woglom) who is considered “one of the guys,” and ladies man Arthur (Rules of Engagement‘s Adhir Kalyan). The best part about Eric Andre staying on network TV (if the pilot gets picked up) is it means he’ll be appearing as a guest on more talk shows and causing a lot of trouble.
