TBS Picks Up Ground FloorBill Lawrence‘s best week ever continues: TBS has given a series order to the Cougar Town co-creator’s new workplace comedy Ground Floor.

From Lawrence and Friends EP Greg Malins, Ground Floor is a multi-camera sitcom that centers on Brody, a 25-year-old alpha male (played by Pitch Perfect‘s Skylar Astin) who, upon meeting his company’s support staff, realizes he’s not nearly as happy as he thought he was.

Cougar alumna Briga Heelan and Scrubs vet John C. McGinley co-star as the building’s maintenance manager romancing Brody and his cranky boss, respectively.

This marks Lawrence’s third pilot pickup this week, following NBC’s Undateable and Fox’s Surviving Jack.

Ground Floor‘s 10-episode run is slated to begin in 2014.

  • Hoping they give some good material to the ridiculously attractive Alexis Knapp, so I can finally figure out if I actually like her as an actress.

  • McGinley playing a cranky guy? What a stretch… seriously, can he play anything else? But thumbs up for Astin! He’s got star potential.
