Aly Michalka & Bianca Kajlich to co-star in 'Undateable'

 

Michalka and Kajlich

 

Well NBC is going back to the multi-camera comedy well once again, this time with their new pilot project 'Undateable.' Written by Adam Sztykiel based on the book by Ellen Rakieten & Anne Coyle, 'Undateable' is described by NBC as a "bromantic comedy" rather than a romantic one, starring Chris D'EliaD’Elia ('Whitney,' 'Workaholics') and Brent Morin ('Chelsea Lately'). The bromance of 'Undateable' occurs between Danny (D'Elia) and Justin Morin(Morin) when they bond over the fact that they both repel the opposite sex. But today, NBC cast two gorgeous female leads... where do they fit in the 'Undateable' picture?

Aly Michalka ('Easy A,' 'Hellcats') plays Maddie, a server in Justin's bar and a friend of his. Maddie is endlessly attracted to jerks and bad pickup lines but has a soft spot for Justin... or could it be something more? Bianca Kajlich ('Hard Love,' 'Rules of Engagement') joins 'Undateable' as Danny's sister Leslie, a divorced single mom who works as a wine rep to get free booze and meet guys. Leslie is described as a straight shooter who tells it like it is. I'm predicting several zingers being tossed Danny's way from his loving sibling.

Given that Kajlich has now booked a pilot, along with her 'Rules of Engagement' co-stars David Spade and Patrick Warburton, it would seem that 'Engagement' is on its way out. Michalka is coming off of filming 'Grown Ups 2' starring Adam Sandler, coming out in the summertime.

Given the ratings woes over at NBC there is an extra-special helping of pressure on this season's pilot projects. 'Undateable' sounds somewhat like a male take on 'Two Broke Girls' so it's possible that it could find an audience.

This show sounds like I could really get in to it BUT..... this is one hell of a way to find out that 'Whitney' & 'Rules of Engagement' are done.

With 2 proven comic actors and the other 2, this just might make it if the wrighters, producers, directors & the crew can pull it together. Here's hopeing :-)

With Chris D'Elia, the male lead of Whitney, having also booked this pilot, it would seem that Whitney may very well be done as well.
