Exclusive: Newsroom Actress Joins TV Land Pilot Brothers-in-Law as Josh Cooke's Wife

The Newsroom‘s Kelen Coleman has scored the last major role in TV Land’s comedy pilot Brothers-in-Law, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The actress — who recurs as Alison’s Pill’s roomie on Aaron Sorkin’s HBO drama — will play the wife of Josh Cooke‘s character on the multi-camera sitcom.

Exec produced by Scott Stuber (Whitney), Bill Martin and Mike Schiff (3rd Rock From the Sun), Brothers-in-Law revolves around Neil (Cooke), a regular Joe who is repeatedly forced to spend time with the eccentric fiancé (Jay Mohr) of his wife’s twin sister (Ellen Woglom), even though the guys share nothing in common.

Fans of The Office may also remember Coleman as Pam’s friend Isabel who had a one-night stand with Dwight on the eve of the Jim/Pam nuptials.
