Development News - April 2, 2019

NBC's Friends-in-Law.

  • Michael Urie, Zach Cregger, Vella Lovell and Gil Ozeri will star in the comedy pilot written by Brian Gallivan. Urie starred for four seasons in ABC's Ugly Betty and has recurred on TV Land's Younger. Cregger starred for three seasons in TBS' Wrecked. Lovell starred for all four seasons in The CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which ends later this week. Ozeri is a writer and voice actor on Netflix's Big Mouth.
  • Urie will play Brian, who fears that his best friend Margaret's potential marriage to Randy will leave him left out. He forms an unlikely partnership with Randy's best friend, Jake, to disrupt their union.
  • Cregger will play Jake, who is handsome and a little too arrogant. He has been best friends with Randy since kindergarten, and he rejects the unwanted additions of Margaret and Brian in his life.
  • Lovell will play Margaret, a sweet and sarcastic middle school librarian who is looking forward to a lifelong relationship with Randy despite the objections of Brian and Jake.
  • Ozeri will play Randy, who is lovable and optimistic. He is ready to live the rest of his life with Margaret, even if Jake does not support his choice.
