Jenna Elfman Joins Goldbergs EPs' Imaginary Friend Comedy Pilot at ABC

Jenna Elfman is really going to need to get in touch with her imagination.

The veteran comedy actress (Dharma & Greg, Growing Up Fisher) has been cast in ABC’s untitled comedy pilot from The Goldbergs EPs David Guarascio and Adam F. Goldberg.

The potential series (fka Imaginary Friend) will mix live action and CGI, and according to the network “centers on a thirtysomething bachelorette whose life is turned upside down when she finally meets the love of her life — a divorced father with three kids. This triggers even more upheaval when the slightly unhinged imaginary friend she created as an only child suddenly reappears in her life to help her navigate the transition from single girl to a woman ready for a family.”

Elfman is playing stepmom-to-be Alice.

Other cast members on the project include Stephen Schneider (You’re the Worst), Nicholas Coombe (iZombie), Matreya Scarrwener (Canada’s Detective McLean: Ties That Bind) and newcomer Erica Tremblay.

    But NBC has an imaginary friend pilot, too, right?

  2. trick2light says:

    Okay… isn’t this about the twelfth sitcom Jenna has done since Dharma and Greg? And none of them were successful. Hasn’t she used up all of her “free passes?” Shouldn’t somebody else be getting a turn?

  3. 51Cards says:

    Will the imaginary friend be called Xenu?

    Never been a fan. Even if I didn’t dislike her I wouldn’t watch. I’m boycotting everything (known) scientologists are in. Years ago, it’s slightly possible celebrity cult members were kept unaware of the egregious abuses occurring within their evil cult. But now? No way. They are very aware. I will continue this boycott until these people come forward to denounce this dangerous cult and display the courage to leave it.

    • Rob says:

      I totally agree. Scientology is EVIL, but not to their celebs. How weak are these people? Just like lemmings!

      • april-ann says:

        Yes…their dirty secret is out. They know their cult is evil and, importantly, we know they know it. The celebrity members of this horrific cult can no longer pretend they are unaware.

  5. Ashley says:

    Eh, no thanks. Jenna Elfman really hasn’t shown a lot of range – she always seems to be playing some version of Dharma, and I’m over the hippy-dippy manic dream girl thing.

  6. D says:

    Is everyone in this cast white? That’s beyond boring and uninspiring.

  7. Eran says:

    Jenna Elfman should take a stab at drama. Her stint was brief but I did enjoy her on the final season of Damages and as all the others have rightly pointed out, she has become somewhat of a sitcom killer over the years.

  8. Ram510 says:

    I really like her, but gosh her shoes never last. Accidentally on Purpose was funny and 1600 Penn was decent wish those would’ve stuck around a little longer than they did

  9. N says:

    A “thirtysomething bachelorette”? Um, she’s 45.

  10. Fiddle D D says:

    Sounds like another “dog”…Angel from Hell

  11. Wilma Flintstone says:

    Jenna Elfman’s presence in any comedy usually spells certain death. She is one of the most unlikable personalities in television. She is over confident and arrogant and too demonstrative as if everyone claps for her no matter what she does. Every time they air her episodes of 2.5 men I shut it off. Girl needs to retire.
