Heather Graham To Star In Fox Comedy Pilot
Deadline -- Heather Graham has been tapped to star opposite Rob Corddry in Fox’s comedy pilot Little In Common.
Rob Thomas’ single-camera comedy, produced by WBTV, centers on the Wellers (Corddry, Graham), who move from California to Texas but find that their adjustment won’t be quite that easy. Graham’s role, which has been recast, was played by Paula Marshall in the original pilot.
This is a rare series gig for Graham, who has been focused primarily on features. She previously toplined the short-lived ABC comedy Emily’s Reasons Why Not and recurred on Scrubs.
Little In Common didn’t snag a series order in May, but the network ordered a new retooled pilot (some of the kids roles also have been recast) in consideration for Fox’s two-hour midseason Tuesday comedy block.
