Development News - Tisha Campbell and Hayley Magnus Board Untitled ABC Comedy Pilot Starring Lucy Liu

Development News - November 2, 2020

ABC's Untitled Shana Goldberg-Meehan.

  • Tisha Campbell will play the co-lead opposite Lucy Liu in the comedy pilot written by Shana Goldberg-Meehan. Hayley Magnus has also been cast today. Campbell starred for five seasons in FOX's Martin, five seasons in ABC's My Wife and Kids and two seasons in ABC's Dr. Ken. Magnus starred in the Quibi comedy Mapleworth Murders.
  • Campbell will play Annie, Devin's (Liu) long-suffering assistant. Happily married and the mother of two children, she's tough at home but hasn't figured out how to bring that fierceness into the office. Just as she decides she's had enough with Devin's demands and prepares to quit, Devin adopts a baby and begs her to stay and share her parenting expertise. In exchange, Devin will mentor Annie professionally. Annie accepts the offer and the dynamic of their relationship dramatically shifts.
  • Magnus will play Missy. Quirky and affable, she works at Shelter Design. A bit of an oddball, she often says things that are a little off, but she means no harm - she's just not great at reading the room.
