perkins_nealonAmy Poehler and Charlie Grandy’s in-the-works NBC pilot just cast two of its stars. According to The Hollywood Reporter, former Weeds cast members Elizabeth Perkins and Kevin Nealon have joined the untitled half-hour comedy (formerly titled Dumb Prince), which centers on “Karl, who after years of partying that earned him the ‘black sheep’ label, returns home to compete with his brother for the family throne.” Perkins will play Queen Tuesday, “the controlling and frosty royal family’s queen of Modaria, who rules with her husband, King Adrian. She’s generally displeased with the choices her children have made though she has hope that Princess Jana will become an item with Prince Harry.” Nealon will pay King Adrian, who is described as “the somewhat clueless King of Modaria, a sweet guy who would rather his wife wear the pants in the family.” Nico Evers-Swindell, Tim Baltz, and Jessie Ennis round out the cast.
