As such, the lead cast is now complete, with Schaal (in the role of man-hungry Louise) joining June Diane Raphael (NTSF:SD:SUV) and Jenny Slate (Saturday Night Live) in the single-camera comedy about three dysfunctional women in their 30s living their lives the way they want, even if society tells them they should have it all figured out by this point.

Moore was originally cast as Louise back in February, but last week the actress exited the project, saying that as writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky “moved the character in a different direction, it was clear this wasn’t right for me.”
