Pilot Scoop: Adrian Pasdar Joins NBC Comedy

Former Heroes star Adrian Pasdar is back at NBC, this time on the comedy side.

In what would be his first regular gig in a half-hour series, Pasdar has been tapped as the male lead opposite Sarah Paulson in NBC’s untitled pilot from New Adventures of Old Christine creator Kari Lizer.

The workplace comedy revolves around Mary Leahy (Paulson), a relationship-challenged woman who, with the help of her co-workers, guides people through unexpected career transitions.

Pasdar will play Brad, a super confident guy who has drunk sex with Mary in a bar bathroom. After seeing how charming he is, Mary and her partner ask him to join their company.

Pasdar recently did an arc on ABC’s Castle.

  • Best of luck. It’s unfortunate Heroes killed off him off, he was a great character and played well with my hubby Milo. I STILL have to watch the final 3 eps.

    • Don’t bother…last episode is all kinds of disappointing.

  • I love Pasdar. Like Paulsen somewhat. Absolutely hate the plot of this sitcom. It doesn’t sound appealing at all.

  • Hmm…not sure I’m thrilled with this show idea, but I’ll watch it if it’s picked up. I adore Adrian Pasdar!
