JoAnna Garcia (Better With You, Privileged) has been tapped to star in Greg Berlanti and Greg Malins’ untitled comedy pilot for CBS, our sister site Deadline reports.
Garcia will play Wendy, the best friend and long-time business partner to the series’ central lead, Nick. After having a health scare, Nick realizes Wendy is The One and must figure out how to break the news to her. (Shades of her perfect girl next door character on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, yeah?)
The project reunites Garcia with Malins, the executive producer/co-showrunner behind her last TV foray, the ABC comedy Better With You.
