Cast set for FX laffer pilot about NY group

Sedaris, McKinney, Beesley join skein

The ensemble for Paul Reiser’s untitled comedy pilot at FX has been set, with “Kissing Jessica Stein” co-writer/star Jennifer Westfeldt among the cast.

Also on board are Amy Sedaris (“Maid in Manhattan”); Mark McKinney (“Kids in the Hall”); Alec Mapa (“Some of My Best Friends”); Peter Friedman (“Someone Like You”); Ileen Getz (“Changing Lanes”); Tracy Middendorf (“The Division”); Lizette Carrion (“Freaky Links”); and Max Beesley (“Glitter”).

The pilot is being shot in New York, with Adam Bernstein directing.

Reiser and playwright Steven Sater are scribe-exec producers, with Arthur Spivak also an exec producer. Reiser’s Nuance Prods. is producing in association with Sony Pictures Television.

The potential half-hour series concerns a seemingly unconnected group of New Yorkers whose lives randomly intersect.
