TV Land finds cast for George Segal pilot
Casey Wilson, Jessica Walter among those in 'Retired at 35'TV Land has assembled the cast of multicamera pilot "Retired at 35."
Johnathan McClain, "Saturday Night Live" alum Casey Wilson and veterans Jessica Walter and Christine Ebersole have landed starring roles opposite previously cast George Segal.
"Retired" follows David (McClain), a successful young businessman who decides to leave the New York rat race behind and move into his father Alan's (Segal) Florida retirement home.
In her first TV gig since her headline-grabbing abrupt exit from "SNL" in September, Wilson will play David's sister. "Arrested Development" alumna Walter, repped by Innovative and manager Sandra Chang, will play David's mom, while Ebersole will play a potential love interest for Alan. McClain is with Innovative and Jackson-Medavoy.
Also cast in the pilot are Josh McDermitt as David's best friend, Ryan Michelle Bathe ("Trauma") as David's love interest, Matt Champagne as Amy's boyfriend, George Wyner as Alan's best friend as well as Jere Burns and Faye DeWitt.
"Retired" and another sitcom pilot, "Hot in Cleveland," which is still casting, mark TV Land's first foray into original scripted series and are targeted for the network's primetime block TV Land Prime.
