Pitch Perfect‘s Skylar Astin is in negotiations to star in Bill Lawrence’s TBS comedy pilot Ground Floor, TVLine has learned. Additionally, Briga Heelan, who recurs as Grayson’s flighty baby mama on Lawrence’s Cougar Town, has signed on to join the cast.
Penned by Lawrence and Greg Malins, Ground Floor is a multi-camera workplace comedy that follows a 25-year-old alpha male (Astin) who, upon crossing paths with his company’s support staff, realizes he’s not nearly as happy as he thought he was.
Heelan will play Jennifer, the self-confident and innately intelligent manager of building maintenance who is enjoying an unexpected romance with Astin’s character.
Scrubs vet John C. McGinley co-stars as the cranky boss.
