Scoop: 2 Broke Girls' Nick Zano Cast Opposite Kal Penn in ABC Comedy Pilot Prairie Dogs
Nick Zano (2 Broke Girls, Cougar Town) has landed the co-lead opposite Kal Penn in the ABC comedy pilot Prairie Dogs.
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.
