Good news for fans of NBC’s Thursday night line-up! Stars from Community and Parks and Recreation could join forces for a new–and likely deliciously twisted–romantic comedy called Sleeping With Other People.
THR reports that Parks and Recreation’s Adam Scott and Community’s Alison Brie are in negotiations to join writer-director Leslye Headland’s second feature, Sleeping With Other People. We first got word of this project in the summer of 2013, when Kirsten Dunst and Jason Sudeikis had been lined up to star.
Penned by Headland, Sleeping With Other People will focus on the friendship that blossoms between a womanizer (Sudeikis) and a serial cheater (Dunst). As you might expect, the ladykiller and the man-eater end up falling for each other, and their bad romance habits become a real obstacle.
TV Land has given a pilot order to Teachers, a comedy based on the popular web series of the same name. Community co-star Alison Brie is attached to executive produce the project, which revolves around six elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds and lives of America’s youth, but they don’t really seem to have their own lives together at all. From making their class help them stalk exes online to altering a grade because the art teacher is “kind of a b****,” these teachers are certainly changing the TVLand Logo 2012 Blue (with TM)world, one student at a time.
The stars of the web series — Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Katie Thomas — aka The Katydids (their names are all variations of Katie) – are signed on to reprise their roles. “From the second this project came across my desk, I’ve been in love with it,” said TV Land president Larry W. Jones. “The tone of the show is unlike anything we’ve had on TV Land. I’m really excited about the idea of building this unexplored world, where teachers are the eccentric characters you always hoped they weren’t.”
Alison Brie, who stars in NBC’s Community and recurs on Mad Men, is set to join Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart in Get Hard, the Etan Cohen-directed comedy. In the Gary Sanchez-produced pic for Warner Bros, Ferrell plays a wealthy investment banker wrongly convicted of a crime, who toughens up for prison under the wing of the guy who washes his car (Hart). Brie will play the fiancee of Ferrell’s character. Repped by WME, Velocity Entertainment Partners and Sloane Weber, she next will be seen on the big screen in Universal’s Search Party.
B.J. Novak, widely known for his role as Ryan Howard on The Office, recently published a short story collection called One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories.
One of the short stories in the collection, “Julie and the Warlord,” is a surrealist piece about the first date between a young woman and a warlord. It’s hilariously intriguing.
The piece was read for the radio show This American Life by Novak as the narrator, Alison Brie as the young woman and TV On The Radio vocalist Tunde Adebimpe as the warlord.
