Sneak Peek: Undateable Guy Makes a Clumsy -- and Frankly Scary! -- Play for Briga Heelan

My game might not be quite as awful as this guy’s, but having met Briga Heelan in person just last week, I do feel his pain.

On Thursday, May 29 at 9/8c, a new NBC comedy will illustrate the many ways a singleton can be Undateable, one of which is on display in this exclusive sneak peek.

Executive-produced by Bill Lawrence (Cougar Town), Adam Sztykiel (Due Date) and Jeff Ingold (Ground Floor), Undateable stars Chris D’Elia (Whitney) as Danny Burton, a confident 29-year-old who, though not the biggest prize himself, endeavors to help his new, overthinker of a roommate Justin (played by comedian Brent Morin) improve his dating life.

Case in point: In the clip below, Danny urges bar owner Justin to “go for it” with bartender Nicki (Ground Floor’s Heelan), and it’s alllll downhill from there.

Rounding out the cast are Ron Funches (Crash & Bernstein), Rick Glassman and Brit David Fynn (Big Bad World), as Danny’s hangers-on, while Bianca Kajlich (Rules of Engagement) plays his recently divorced older sister, Leslie.
