Pilot Scoop: Ugly Betty Alum Becki Newton Lands Starring Role in Fox Comedy Weird Loners
Ugly Betty vet Becki Newton is heading back to Fox as one of the stars of Weird Loners, a half-hour comedy pilot about four relationship-phobic people who are unexpectedly thrust into one another’s lives in a townhouse in Queens, NY, TVLine has learned.
Newton, who starred in last season’s short-lived Fox comedy The Goodwin Games, will play Caryn Goldfarb, a smart, attractive, high-strung, dental hygienist who is a pushover where handsome, charming men are concerned, but who always comes on too strong and fast for any relationship to last.
As we reported earlier this month, one of the other four loners will be played by Happy Endings‘ Zachary Knighton.
King of Queens scribe Michael Weithorn penned the script.
