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!

  • i personally chose to believe that sarah got her memories back with that ‘one magical kiss’. I for one am very excited to see zach back on tv and in a comedic role to fit! I’m giving him all my support! CHUCK FTW!

    • That’s what I choose to believe too. At least they left it open to that option since they screwed it up so badly.

  • I would love to have Zach & Yvonne back together…but I think they need to put someone with that can do slapstick humour. Beckie Newton would have been great but she’s headlining her own show. Zach had great on-screen chemistry with Rachel Bilson & Kristin Kreuk but Rachel has Hart Of Dixie and no offense to Kristin Kreuk but I don’t think she’d be able to do slapstick comedy. I think either Joanna Garcia or Mandy Moore would make a great fit.
    Can’t wait to see him on the tv again.
    I still MISS CHUCK!!! :S :’(

  • I love Yvonne but I can’t see having Chuck and Sarah in another life… So don’t count on having her with him on the small screen again (sadly).
    I can’t wait to see who they’ll bring as his dearly beloved but it’s kinda sad that whoever they chose a lot of people will be disappointed that it’s not Sarah. I know it s*cks to move on, but we must accept that Chuck and Sarah will probably never have a fully nice ending that includes the answer to all of our questions…
    Honestly I just want to see Zach on TV… don’t really give a popsicle on who’s with him (as long as they have chemistry on the screen)

  • I knew he’d get more work as will Adam and Yvonne, I’m certain. Just too bad this is on Fox given they cancel most everything that isn’t a huge hit save maybe one show like Fringe. They’ll probably cancel this one after three episodes.

  • Why not his original love on Chuck played by Jordana Brewster? Her and Zack seemed to click really well when they played a couple then.

  • Autumn Reeser would be a perfect pick for me (also supporting Yvonne and Mandy ofc)..I just think they would be hilarious together! ;P

  • Zachary Levi will do great. Hopefully, they will screen test for chemistry between him and the other lead. He is a very talented guy!

  • Vague ‘relationship comedy’ outline? Written by a guy whose recent vague relationship comedy was axed after twelve seconds? Come on, Zach is worth more than that! Someone hire him for something that will actually score ratings!

  • Does anybody know when the show will start airing if its given a green light???

  • How about Matthew Bomer, he played Bryce Larkin.

  • ZAC AND YVONNE REUNION! they have great chemistry! i think watever projects they do together would be picked by fans coz they just know each other too well, ease around each other. and that gives ease on fans viewing too! CHARAH FOR LIFE!!!

  • I would really like to see Joshua Gomez get the best friend role I really liked him and Zachary Levi together on Chuck and it would be very cool to see them together again. Also Joshua and Zachary are friends in real life so that might help Joshua land the role. Yvonne is busy filming a movie than a pilot I don’t think she has the time to even consider the role if she even gets invited.

    • totally agree, Joshua was very good and it blended well with Zac!

  • Yes. Please cast Yvonne. It would be like a Chuck spinoff = amazing!! :))

  • Based from the premise, I bet this’ll have a bit of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’-ish tone to it. But as much as I adore Yvonne Freakin’ Strahovski’, I don’t think she’ll be a good fit. I just can’t see her in a straight-up comedy. How about Kristen Bell?

  • Only one woman in my book for Zachary Levi. Yvonne Strahovski!!!! as Zachary Levi’s wife is nothing less that perfect!!!!!! This might also help Chuck fans with their saddness!

  • I LOVED the cast of Chuck, all of them, but as much as i’d like to see them all back in a show like that, I dont want a Chuck 2 for now, so please, not Yvonne as the wife… make her play a strong secondary role but not his wife…

  • WOHO! it would be awesome to se zach and ywonne work together. haha can’t fox just pick up chuck??

  • YVONNE FREAKIN’ STRAHOVSKI. Make that happen and I will totally watch a Fox comedy! (Apart from Raising Hope, it’s been a crapyard as of late.) But honestly, bring those two together and you get chemistry explosion. Whatever the premise is, it will work out. I promise you.
    Just to add, as a selfish Chuck fan, I think it’d be really difficult seeing Zac as another character (with another TV wife on top of that) after the epic run of the show. However, I want them back on my TV again in any capacity so..bring it on!

  • Well, I have a feeling Fox would be unwilling to go across the pond, but I think Karen Gillan would be fantastic (sorry, no pun intended)! I like the idea of Kristen Bell, but IIRC, she’s 5’2″ & since he’s 6’4″, that maybe some tricky manuvering for a single camera. I don’t know. And as much as I loved ZL as Chuck and YS as Sarah, I think pairing them up again as a different couple would be too soon. Having seen them for 5 seasons as Chuck & Sarah, somethings just wouldn’t gel for me if they were to be together as two different characters so soon. I’d love to see them together again down the road, just not now. If Fox were open to doing a younger husband & older wife, I would LOVE to see Zachary Levi with Andrea Parker. They’ve got fantastic chemistry, I think.

  • How about Betty White!! We already have seen the chemistry in her and ZL’s kiss !! ;)

  • I would love to see him cast against someone a little more hippie-ish since Sarah was so uptight on Chuck. I think whoever is cast is going to be one lucky lady. I’d watch this show for sure!

  • Ummmm…Yvonne Strahovski!!! She’s in demand by the ppl. Can’t deny the pplz! :)

  • I think Katherine McPhee would make a great wife for him.

  • Yvonne is the only way to go otherwise it won’t be good. Every other suggestion is wrong. Final say.
