The comedy pilot, from “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas and starring Rob Corddry, was not picked up during the May upfronts, just added Heather Graham as its female lead.
Deadline reports Graham replaces Paula Marshall, who starred in the original pilot, as Corddry’s characters’ wife.
The single-camera series follows the Wellers (Corddry, Graham) making friends (and frenemies) with their new neighbors following a move from California to Texas.
“Little in Common” garnered a lot of buzz during pilot season, but FOX initially chose to take a pass when announcing series orders in May. The retooled pilot is considered a likely addition to the network’s two-hour midseason Tuesday comedy block.
Graham’s previous television credits include a recurring role on “Scrubs” and the lead role in ABC’s ill-fated “Emily’s Reasons Why Not.”
