TBS has added another original comedy series to its slate, picking up “Ground Floor” starring Skylar Astin of “Pitch Perfect.”
The upstairs-downstairs romantic comedy also stars Briga Heelan (“Cougar Town”) and John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”). Greg Malins (“How I Met Your Mother,” “Friends”) and Bill Lawrence (“Cougar Town,” “Scrubs”) created the series and will executive produce it with Jeff Ingold. The 10-episode first season is scheduled to premiere in 2014.
Astin plays a young banker who discovers the woman he just had a one-night stand with (Heelan) is part of the maintenance crew in the building where he works. The two try to continue their budding relationship while working around their skeptical colleagues.
McGinley plays Astin’s boss. The “Ground Floor” cast also includes Astin’s “Pitch Perfect” co-star Alexis Knapp, Rory Scovel, James Earl (“Glee”) and Rene Gube.
“Ground Floor” is the third new comedy from Lawrence’s company, Doozer, to get the green light for next season. It joins “Surviving Jack” on FOX and “Undateable” on NBC, the latter of which also features Heelan in the pilot’s cast.
