The half-hour project, written by Bridesmaids’ Wilson and executive produced by Conan O’Brien, was originally developed by CBS as a multi-camera comedy.

After being passed over, ABC came on board to redevelop the project as a single-camera comedy.

Ash’s earlier TV credits include the CBC police drama Cracked, the Shaw Media drama Bomb Girls and playing the role of Sam Goldman on The Dating Guy.

Ash is represented by Parent Management, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and The Glick Agency.
