Development News - Comedy Central Orders Comedy Pilot 'Bad Couple'; Carla Gugino Boards Showtime's 'Roadies'

Development News - August 3, 2015

Comedy Central's Bad Couple and Showtime's Roadies.

  • The cable network has given a pilot order to single camera comedy Bad Couple written by Flint Wainess and Noël Wells and starring Wells. The project follows Flint and Noël (Wells), an inseparable, highly opinionated couple who constantly clash with modern social mores, making life difficult for friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and themselves.
  • Carla Gugino (Wayward Pines, The Brink) has been tapped to replace Christina Hendricks as the female lead on the hourlong comedy pilot written by Cameron Crowe. She will play Shelli, the band's production manager, a world-class multi-tasker, passionate music fan and tireless work partner to the band's tour manager Bill (Luke Wilson). Their unique personal and professional relationship is forever crashing and colliding as they guide the daily events of the band and the crew of roadies.
