Replacement found for Jon Heder comedy

Chris Gethard will take over role abandoned by actor

Comedy Central has found a replacement for Jon Heder in its upcoming comedy series.

"Upright Citizens Brigade" regular Chris Gethard has been cast in the lead role of the multicamera comedy about an out-of-work computer IT specialist who returns to his small hometown and moves in with his parents and younger brother. The project also has a working title, "Big Lake."

Heder dropped out of the project just before the start of production over "creative differences."

Gethard has also written for "Saturday Night Live" and the Onion News Network.
The series will start production next week in New York.
