TBS Picks Up Bill Lawrence Sitcom Ground Floor

TBS Picks Up Ground FloorBill Lawrence‘s best week ever continues: TBS has given a series order to the Cougar Town co-creator’s new workplace comedy Ground Floor.

From Lawrence and Friends EP Greg Malins, Ground Floor is a multi-camera sitcom that centers on Brody, a 25-year-old alpha male (played by Pitch Perfect‘s Skylar Astin) who, upon meeting his company’s support staff, realizes he’s not nearly as happy as he thought he was.

Cougar alumna Briga Heelan and Scrubs vet John C. McGinley co-star as the building’s maintenance manager romancing Brody and his cranky boss, respectively.

Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect), Rory Scovel (Zach Stone is Going to be Famous), James Earl (Glee) and Rene Gube (Upright Citizens Brigade) round out Ground Floor‘s cast.

This marks Lawrence’s third pilot pickup this week, following NBC’s Undateable and Fox’s Surviving Jack.

Ground Floor‘s 10-episode run is slated to begin in 2014.

    Hoping they give some good material to the ridiculously attractive Alexis Knapp, so I can finally figure out if I actually like her as an actress.

    Good job Bill! I’ll be watching all is new shows and of course Cougar Town. Can’t wait to see Briga and I hope she makes an appearance on Cougar Town soon. Does anybody know what happen to her and baby Tampa anyways?

  7. Jon says:

    McGinley playing a cranky guy? What a stretch… seriously, can he play anything else? But thumbs up for Astin! He’s got star potential.

  8. Marco says:

    There are so many actors to watch this for… I’ll single out James Earl (Azimio from Glee).
