Krysta Rodriguez The Trail

Smash's Krysta Rodriguez Cast in NBC's The Trail Comedy Pilot

Krysta Rodriguez, please raise your right hand, and solemnly swear to bring the LOLs.

The Smash alumna is set to co-star in The Trail, NBC’s documentary-style comedy pilot about a high-profile murder trial in a small southern town, TVLine has learned.

Penned by Jeff Astrof (Angie Tribeca, Ground Floor) and Matt Miller (Forever), the potential series follows a young, big-city lawyer (Gotham‘s Nicholas D’Agosto) and his oddball defense team.

Rodriguez will play Summer, the free-spirited adopted daughter of beloved poetry professor Larry Henderson (How I Met Your Mother‘s John Lithgow), who is accused of murdering his wife. Steven Boyer (Broadway’s Hand to God), Sherri Shepherd (How I Met Your Mother) and Jayma Mays (Glee) round out the cast.

Rodriguez’s other TV credits include guest spots on Chasing Life and The Mysteries of Laura.

Will her casting make you more likely to vote in favor of The Trail? Sound off below!
