Less than a month after the two-part Season 1 finale of freshman sitcom 'Ground Floor,' TBS has elected to renew the multi-camera series for a second year.
Created by 'Scrubs' and 'Spin City' mastermind Bill Lawrence, 'Ground Floor' is a workplace comedy set at a large metropolitan bank. The bank's offices are located inside a skyscraper, and young, hot-shot banker Brody Moyer (Skylar Astin) works on the top floor.
Brody never really gives much thought to those toiling away below him, that is until he unknowingly has a one night stand with ground floor dweller Jenny (Brigga Heelan), a beautiful member of the building's maintenance staff. The two quickly begin for fall for each other, annoying the heck out of their respective colleagues in the process.
Other regular cast members include comedian Rory Scovel, Rene Gube (who also writes for the show), James Earl ('Glee'), Alexis Knapp ('Pitch Perfect'), and 'Scrubs' veteran John C. McGinley as Brody's jerk of a boss Remington Stewart Mansfield.
Season 2 of 'Ground Floor' will once again consist of 10 episodes, and is expected to enter production in late 2014. 'Ground Floor's Season 1 audience average was a healthy (for basic cable) 1.8 million viewers, with 1.1 of them belonging to the desired 18-49 demographic.
For his part, super producer Lawrence now has four different shows either currently airing, or soon to air, including 'Floor, fellow TBS series 'Cougar Town,' upcoming FOX comedy 'Surviving Jack,' and upcoming NBC comedy 'Undateable.' 'Surviving Jack' premieres on March 27, and 'Undateable' is expected to make its debut not long after.
