CBS’ Odd Couple reboot is breaking up with two series regulars.
Georgia King (The New Normal) and Sarah Baker (Go On) have exited the Matthew Perry comedy for creative reasons, TVLine has learned.
King was set to play Katie, a model who lives in Oscar and Felix’s building, while Baker was cast as Oscar’s assistant Sam — a part written specifically for the actress by her ex-Go On co-star Perry.
Both roles will be recast.
The multi-cam remake, which last week was ordered to series, follows two mismatched roommates: the messy Oscar Madison (Perry) and neat freak Felix Unger (Thomas Lennon). The cast also includes Wendell Pierce (The Michael J. Fox Show, Treme) and Lindsay Sloane (Weeds).
