Pilot Scoop: Zach Levi to Headline Fox's Let It Go

Get More: News, Pilots

Zachary Levi Let It GoZachary Levi may not be off the small screen for long.

The in-demand Chuck headliner has landed the male lead in Fox’s half-hour single camera comedy pilot Let It Go, sources confirm to TVLine.

The ensemble comedy revolves around a married couple as they try to navigate, negotiate and sometimes manipulate society’s unspoken rules.

The news was first reported by our sister site Deadline.com.

DJ Nash (Traffic Light) penned the script and will serve as an EP alongside Peter Tolan (Rescue Me) and Michael Wimer.

Casting for Levi’s onscreen significant other continues. Got a suggestion or two? Deposit ‘em in the comments. Let me get you started: Yvonne freakin’ Strahovski!

    • Agreed! How bout Sara Rue? A Less Than Perfect Reunion!!!!

      • That suggestion made my day!!
        I just hope this is a strong show and FOX eases back on its usual itchy trigger finger and lets it have a shot.

  • I WILL WATCH ANYTHING HE IS IN. HE CAN BE CLEANING UP DOG POOP AND I WOULD STILL WATCH. ok. done screaming now. hope it gets picked up!

    • I completely agree and I don’t blame you for screaming. ;)

    • you just gave writers and producers everywhere the idea to make zachary levi pick up dog poop. and he could probably pull it off.

    • Squeeeee! I agree I was in full Zac withdrawal. As for significant other Yvonne would be more than perfect.

      Comment by Karen – February 14, 2012 07:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • totally agreed. he could pick up poop wearing a potato sack and Id be watching eagerly.

  • I would totally love it if they got Yvonne Strahovski to play his wife.

    Comment by Dean – February 13, 2012 07:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It wouldn’t work so soon – you’d just end up frustrated that things didn’t play out like Chuck and Sarah, and it would create a disconnect.
      I am not going to say that I hope it gets picked up. Rather, I hope it deserves to be picked up. Zach deserves quality writing.

      Comment by Ben – February 13, 2012 07:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Thanks, Ben, for saying this. I really like Zach Levi and would love for him to find another great project, but not just so he can be on TV – it needs to be good for it to get picked up. Producers would make a big mistake to just hire Yvonne because she worked with Zach in the past.
        I would much rather see Zach and Yvonne go on to totally different projects – say something on Broadway – and then come back to tv in a while after the Chuck memories have faded (particularly since this last season was not near as good as the show deserved for a sendoff).
        The only people who can successfully jump from tv show to tv show are the people who are doing small stints or with something like Once Upon A Time where they get to be a really different character!

        Comment by Agreed – February 14, 2012 11:54 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • i disagree with this. id be more interested in a 2 hour chuck movie that resolves what clyde barker mentioned at beginning of season 5 about them being puppets in a grander scheme, and also resolve whether sarah got her memories back. cuz thats just sad to take away 5 years of a relationship.

      Comment by TJCrinc – February 13, 2012 08:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • And she could play a woman named Sarah who has all her memories of the last five years! And they could be ex-CIA agents! And they could live in a white house with a red door!
      Yup, I want to see it!

      Comment by Josh – February 13, 2012 08:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I wouldn’t. I loved Chuck but I’ve never found Yvonne Strahovski as awesome as everyone else seemed to. I mean yea she was a badass but outside of that she was just kind of vanilla, JMO.

      Comment by Ari – February 14, 2012 03:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree! Chuck was simply not interesting enough for me without Sarah! She made him look good. If they have both Zach and Yvonne on this show, that would definitely make me tune in.

      Comment by GK – February 14, 2012 05:12 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yvonne rulzzz let them be together again :)

      Comment by Asari – February 14, 2012 07:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m not usually a fan of sitcoms but I’ll watch Zac. Let’s hope it gets picked up!

  • YES!!!!!

  • I was hoping he was going to play Mandy Moore’s husband on the show she was working on.

    Comment by Ava – February 13, 2012 07:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I hoped for that, too, but I knew it was a long shot. Oh well… I’m just happy/hoping to see them both back on TV. I’ve already missed my weekly doses of Zachary!

  • Yes, yes. Yvonne Freaking Strahovski FTW – For the Wife. :) :D

  • If Joanna Garcia already didn’t have something in the works, I would have suggested her, because she’s just brilliant. I’m not sure, though. Hmm.

    Comment by Summer – February 13, 2012 08:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Are you kidding…..it has to be Yvonne!!!! It’s going to be tough seeing someone else star opposite Zac
    That being said, I will watch the show!

    • and seriously it is from the guy that made f’n traffic light? I really hope it turns out to be great and ratings hit but so far it doesnt look like it to me

      Comment by ggny – February 13, 2012 08:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yah that new girl show is not a hit at all…

      Comment by Ben – February 13, 2012 08:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • omg 1 hit in the last 10 years and it barely has 8mil viewers

        Comment by ggny000 – February 13, 2012 09:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • The number of viewers doesnt matter it’s the 18-49 rating that advertisers pay for and new girl is definitely a hit when it gets. 3.5 every week making it the highest rated scripted show on fox

  • I second the Strahovski suggestion!

    Comment by Jim – February 13, 2012 08:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Ideally, I’d like to see him with someone who is just as capable of being funny as he is… but that can be kind of limiting. I can almost see Elizabeth Banks in the role, but who knows. I’d love Mandy Moore just because they’re cute together, but I think she’s occupied. So… Odette Anable/Yustman? I actually like her on House, she had her moments in You Again, and she’s seems a good match physically, plus with House finishing, she’ll need a job.

    Comment by Kim N. – February 13, 2012 08:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Odette Annable wouldn’t be too bad……I could like her in the role.

  • Awesome!!! I need more Zachary Levi!!! I will miss him with Strahovski though!

  • How about Kristen Kruek? They seemed good together in Chuck when she guest starred.

    • Kristen Kruek would be a great choice

  • If, God forbid, my favorite single camera sitcom of all time doesn’t survive the year, and Alison Brie suddenly finds herself looking for a new gig, that would be a match made in heaven.

    Comment by wordsmith – February 13, 2012 09:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • So exited!!! The only lead actress I can think of is Yvonne Strahovski!

    Comment by Louise – February 13, 2012 09:22 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’d love to see Zac opposite Felicia Day, whether it’s in this project or something else. I think they’d be great together!

  • I don’t understand what’s so good about this guy. Sobbing.

    Comment by Mima – February 13, 2012 10:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Why sobbing? You don’t have to watch him.

      Comment by Marie – February 14, 2012 12:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • How could you NOT want Yvonne? They have proven chemistry. You want the show to be successful and want the legions of chuck fans, bring her on board.

    Comment by Carmichael – February 13, 2012 10:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Is it wrong that I want to see Zac star opposite Mekenna Melvin (Alex from Chuck)

    Comment by chris – February 14, 2012 12:10 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’ll watch anything with Zach in it, but TBH I would have preferred an 45min/hour long dramedy again over a 20min comedy. I’ll take what I can get. Now what about Adam Baldwin now? What’s he got in the pipeline?

    Comment by localboy – February 14, 2012 01:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • OH MY GOD! THAAAANKYOUUUUU! I love Zachary Levi, and I miss him soooooo mucccccchhhh! Yes, Yes … YVONNE HAS TO BE THE LEAD.
    oh, let Zach sing.

  • I go to youtube and what do I see at the top of the screen?
    A playful Yvonne Strahovski near a pool, ad for Sobe Lifewater. Don’t know how long it’ll be up. I actually hit ‘play’ on an ad for the first time to watch it LOL. She is playfully “Sarah Walker” smile and everything, hot.
    So glad she’s getting work after Chuck…I feared the Tabrett Bethel route into obscurity for her…then again Yvonne got 5 yrs, Tabrett only got one :(

    • It was announced last week (or earlier this week) on this website that she has another pilot in the works. It is a period piece about the old west.

  • I’d watch anything with Zach in it! PLEASE GET PICKED UP!! We want more Zachary Levi! I’d love Yvonne to be in it, but it would be so weird because it would remind us of Chuck & Sarah.

  • OMYGOD. if they put yvonne as his wife, all CHARAH FANBASE are going WILD!!! I WANT YVONNE AS HIS WIFE. FINGERS CROSSED!

    Comment by alyssia – February 14, 2012 03:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • In my opinion it’d be really weird to have it be Yvonne. I mean I love her and I think she’s awesome, but they’re not going to be Chuck and Sarah, and wouldn’t it alter how you see the Chuck/Sarah relationship watching them as two supposedly different characters? I don’t think they’d ever do it anyway, they all loved the show but they also want to move on and create new work.
    I love Andrea Anders and think she’d be a great match for Zac. Other than that, it just needs to be someone who can match him comedically and there are plenty of funny women out there who would be great.

  • Due to the complete lack of support that ABC has shown Cougar Town, Busy Phillips would probably be free and has proven to be a great comedic actor.

  • Lizzy Caplan’s sardonic delivery could be hilarious paired with his enthusiasm.

  • What in the world do they mean by “society’s unspoken rules”? Nowadays, you can pretty much do whatever you want. Unless, they mean a particular society’s rules – like the characters are from another planet, or another country, or they moved from Massachusetts to Texas.
    Whatever, I love Zach Levi and I’m happy that the networks do, too.

  • I know that Becki Newton is signed on for another Fox pilot, but is it wrong that I hope that flames out and she comes over to this project instead? They would be such a great team. But in truth, Zac can have chemistry with a rock…if you look back at Chuck, there’s never really been a love interest where Chuck (Zac) didn’t sell the attraction & possibility (Lou, Jill, Hannah, and of course Sarah).

  • Love Zachary! Will watch him in anything.
    There have been some great suggestions for his better half with the exception of Yvonne. I love her but Zac should move away from being viewed as another Chuck.

  • Yvonne is currently working on her next project ‘I, Frankenstein’, she’s already in Australia due to the beginning of the filmings..
    So how could possibly she would be free to accept the offer to work on the pilot if she ever gets to be invited? :/

    Comment by Nina – February 14, 2012 07:26 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I was reading many of the suggestions and I agree with many of them.
    My suggestions -
    Yvonne will be awesome, Odette Annable would be my next choice (but after House she might return to Breaking in), Kristen Kreuk, Rachel Bilson (but she is in Hart of Dixie), Lizzy Caplan (taken another show), Becki Newton (taken another show), Denise Quiñones (not too many know about her but I loved her in Freddie), Johanna Garcia is a great choice as well I loved her in Reba. Mandy Moore, a Tangled reunion would be great, I wouldn’t mind seeing them sing once in a while too :)

  • Zach & Yvonne reunion! Yey! I would be totally into that! :)
