FX is doubling down on Judy Greer.
The actress, who provides the voice of Cheryl on the network’s “Archer,” has been added to the cast of an untitled comedy pilot in contention at the cable net. The comedy, from creator Andrew Gurland, revolves around the lengths with which two best friends will go to save their marriage.
Greer will play Lina Bowman, wife to Nat Faxon‘s (“Ben and Kate”) Russ Bowman. The couple gets along great in every room — except the bedroom. “Living in a new city with no friends, and overwhelmed by her three young daughters, at the end of the day Lina would rather curl up with vampire fan fiction than her always-horny husband. In order to save their otherwise great marriage and family, she gives her husband permission to take care of his needs elsewhere”
The pilot, which goes into production this summer in Los Angeles, reunites Greer with Faxon, who won an Oscar for writing “The Descendants,” which she appeared in.
