Actress to star in CBS' midseason comedy

Judy Greer has joined the cast of “Mad Love,” finalizing CBS’ pickup of the midseason comedy.

Eye had already given a 13-episode order to the laffer, but pickup was held up as producers looked to replace star Lizzy Caplan, who had only agreed to appear as a guest in the pilot.

Enter Judy Greer, a critic fave who starred in “Miss Guided.”

Sitcom, from Sony Pictures TV and CBS TV Studios, revolves around a group of friends searching for love in New York City.

Sarah Chalke previously signed on to replace Minka Kelly, who was also recast.

Matt Tarses is the writer and exec producer. Jamie Tarses is also exec producer.

Greer’s credits also include “Arrested Development.”
