Natalie Morales (Parks and Recreation), Amy Landecker (Transparent) and Alice Lee (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) are set to headline CBS‘ comedy pilot from comedian/author Sarah Cooper and Sex and the City‘s Cindy Chupack.
Lee this season was promoted to series regular on NBC’s Zoey’s Playlist, where she plays sis-in-law Emily. If the musical dramedy is renewed for a third season (as many TVLine readers wish), Lee would likely return to guest-starring.
Inspired by Cooper’s book How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings, the single-camera comedy follows three women at different stages in their careers at a male-dominated company, who help each other navigate modern gender politics in their professional and personal lives.
Per our sister site Deadline, Morales has been cast as Joanna, a conflict-averse middle manager at a small tech company; Landecker will play Dale, the only woman on the leadership team; and Lee will play Elyse, a recent hire whose forthright nature gets her in trouble with “the boys club” at work.
