Deadline is reporting that actor Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect and 21&Over) is currently in talks to star in the TBS pilot Ground Floor. Skylar on our tv every week AND in a romantic comedy series? Perfection!
Skylar Astin is in negotiations and Briga Heelan is set to star in the project, written by Lawrence and Greg Malins and directed by Gail Mancuso. Ground Floor, from Warner Horizon, is set in the world of corporate America and takes the Romeo and Juliet story to the workplace. It centers on Harvard grad and master-of-the-universe-in-training money manager, Brody (Astin), who falls hard for feisty and intelligent maintenance supervisor Jennifer (Heelan), whose education ended after high school — a Romeo/Juliet pairing that could rattle their class divisions to the foundations. The two would join previously cast John McGinley.
