Development News - 'Future Man's Eliza Coupe and 'Casual's Tommy Dewey to Star in FOX Comedy Pilot 'Pivoting'

Development News - April 21, 2020

FOX's Pivoting.

  • Eliza Coupe and Tommy Dewey have been cast in lead roles on the comedy pilot written by Liz Astrof. Coupe previously starred for three seasons in ABC's Happy Endings and three seasons in Hulu's Future Man. Dewey starred for four seasons in Hulu's Casual.
  • Coupe will play Amy, the funny, offbeat producer of a local cooking show who resolves to spend more time with her children following the death of close friend Colleen - even though she knows next to nothing about parenting and finds 30 minutes with her kids frankly exhausting. She is also trying to help her other two best friends - Jodie and Sarah - who are both at comical crossroads in their lives.
  • Dewey will play Henry. Like the houses he builds as a private contractor, he can weather the storm that is his wife Amy. During an argument while driving, he accidentally crashes through the front of their local grocery store - which, surprisingly, does wonders for their sex life.
