Two particular favorites of ours are starting to get their due.
The workplace comedy set in a NJ plastics molding plant starring Judy Greer will have Veronica Osorio, who has been a delight in numerous sketches over the years as well as a role in the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!, as a series regular playing a former assistant to Greer’s Jane, who is the head of HR.
The Phil Lord and Chris Miller time travel comedy pilot will feature Yassir Lester, who we’ve enjoyed as a stand-up and one of the funniest people on Twitter even before The Comedy Bureau started (on top of now writing for The Carmichael Show and Girls). He’ll get to play opposite star Adam Pally as an ideal professor whose world becomes less ideal when time travel is factored in.
High concepts and great casts including some of fantastic people that we’ve been following for awhile make us hope dearly that both shows go to series.
