Development News - April 27, 2021

ABC's Promised Land and TBS' Kill the Orange-Faced Bear.

  • Sarah Silverman, Nicole Byer and Sam Richardson will voice characters on the comedy pilot starring Damon Wayans Jr. Silverman stars in the Wreck-It Ralph film franchise. Byer currently hosts Netflix's Nailed It! and TBS' Wipeout. Richardson previously starred for four seasons in HBO's Veep.
  • Silverman will play Brenda, the sarcastic badass grizzly bear who attacked and ate Hank's (Wayans Jr.) fiancée Stacy (Jessy Hodges) - for personal reasons. When Stacy's friends panicked and mistook a can of spray paint for bear mace, they turned Brenda's face orange - but she won't let being marked make her an easy target for Hank's revenge plan.
  • Byer will play Pauline, a bear with perfect fur and perfect nails who uses her feminine wiles to seduce Brenda's husband.
  • Richardson will play Steve, the charmingly idiotic grizzly bear with a dangerous habit of breaking into cars to steal snacks and beer.
  • Tonatiuh will co-star on the drama pilot starring John Ortiz. He previously recurred on all three seasons of Starz's Vida.
  • He will play Antonio Sandoval, one of five children of the Sandoval family, a wealthy vineyard-owning clan in the Sonoma Valley. He has been living in New York after being cast into exile by his father Joe (Ortiz), but is called back into the fold when the family faces a threat from the outside. Whether Antonio has forgiven or forgotten the treatment he received from his family remains an open question.
