Eleven regulars have been assembled for DirecTV’s first original comedy series — or should we say they’ve been enlisted?
Parker Young and Keith David, both of whom starred in Fox’s cancelled military comedy, are among the cast of Things You Shouldn’t Say Past Midnight, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Young will play a 19-year-old college sophomore who pulls a prank on the dean of his school, played by David.
Also in the mix are Broad City‘s Stephen Schneider, Cougar Town‘s Collette Wolfe, Silicon Valley‘s Jimmy Ouyang, Reno 911‘s Kerri Kenny, See Dad Run‘s Alanna Ubach, Insidious‘ Lin Shaye, NCIS: Los Angeles‘ Jorge-Luis Pallo, Boardwalk Empire‘s Ivo Nandi and The Killing‘s Hugh Dillon.
Ordered for 10 episodes, Midnight will begin airing later this year.
