Casey Wilson to star in Tina Fey-produced comedy pilot for NBC
Casey Wilson has joined Team Tina.
The Happy Endings vet has signed on to star opposite Busy Philipps in the NBC comedy pilot The Sackett Sisters, which is being produced by 30 Rock executive producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.
The single-camera pilot, which is being written by Luke Del Tredici (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), follows the exploits of two sisters who “perform an actor public heroism and are forced to navigate the aftermath together,” which winds up reuniting their family. Bradley Whitford plays the father of the sisters.
Wilson, who has recently guested on such shows as Grey’s Anatomy, Fresh Off the Boat, and black-ish, will be returning to the Peacock, where she starred in the 2014-15 comedy Marry Me.
Fey and Carlock are producing another NBC comedy, Great News, which premieres in April.
Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, and Tracy Morgan star in the Emmy-winning comedy. You want to go to there.
