Scoop: Heather Graham to Headline Fox Comedy Pilot Little in Common

Heather Graham has been tapped to star opposite Rob Corddry in Fox’s comedy pilot Little In Common.

The single-camera project, from Veronica Mars and Party Down vet Rob Thomas, centers on the Wellers (Corddry, Graham), who move from California to Texas, but find that their adjustment won’t be quite that easy considering their Latina single mother neighbor (played by Alana Ubach) has a radically different approach to child-rearing than they do. Meanwhile, their other new neighborhood acquaintances, the African American Burlesons (Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union), take sports way too seriously.

Graham’s role was played by Paula Marshall in the original pilot. This is a rare series gig for the primarily film actress. She previously toplined the short-lived ABC comedy Emily’s Reasons Why Not and recurred on Scrubs.
