Carrie Preston Lands Lead in Comedy Pilot
True Blood alumni are a hot commodity this pilot season! In addition to Rutina Wesley, Stephen Moyer, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Christopher Meloni, and Joe Manganiello, Carrie Preston has been snapped up for a role in a pilot.
According to Deadline, Carrie has been cast as the female lead opposite Patrick Warburton in NBC’s untitled multi-camera pilot from Suzanne Martin. The show chronicles how things backfire for recent empty-nesters Mike Gunn (Warburton) and Martina Gunn (Preston) when their children and their parents move back home.
In addition to this pilot, which begins filming soon, Carrie is recurring on the new Showtime comedy series Happyish, premiering in April.
