Penned by That ’70s Show‘s Jackie and Jeff Filgo, the show follows an uncool cubicle worker — aka “prairie dog” — named Neil (Penn) who is the victim of identity theft. Said corporate drone ultimately discovers the thief (Zano) created a much more fulfilling life with his identity than he ever did — and thus he engages the con man to help him improve his prospects.

Zano is currently recurring on 90210.

SNL alumna Michaela Watkins rounds out the cast.

  • I love Michaela Watkins! Too bad she’s stuck in a show with two men who’s comedy skills are… questionable.

  • Oh please – like anyone who matters watches 902whatever.

    Nick has boosted ratings on ’2 Broke Girls’ with his on-and-off-screen relationship with costar Kat. With Haylie Duff in his rear-view, along with 90210 for which his contract concluded, Nick’s career continues to move with accelerated momentum. GO NICK!

    • This guy was brutally bad on 2 Broke Girls. Awful. Maybe it was the way they wrote the script, but a more boring character would have had to be dead. That character had NO charisma, and I was glad when they wrote him out.

  • Loved him on 2BG, and wish they had not taken the storyline the way they had and kept him on because it was something special.

  • As a dude I aways thought he was funny but he only did love stuff it’s going to be interesting to see him in a group of guys.
