Project, first developed at NBC, recently nabbed a series order at Fox

John Mulaney’s Fox comedy is set to retain the talent attached to the project when it was seated at NBC, as Elliott Gould, Nasim Pedrad and Seaton Smith have been confirmed as cast members.

Trio joins previously-announced cast members Martin Short and Mulaney in “Mulaney.” Zack Pearlman has also been added to the cast.

“Mulaney,” which was originally developed at NBC, received a series order from Fox in October. Laffer is set in Gotham and follows an aspiring comedian (Mulaney) who comes of age under the influence of his boss (Short), roommates and neighbors.

Gould, who recently appeared in Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” will play Oscar, Mulaney’s colorful neighbor who is a gay vet of the New York City scene. Pedrad, a current “Saturday Night Live” cast member, will play one of Mulaney’s roommates, a personal trainer fixated on justice in her romantic life.

Smith will play Motif, a comedian and ladies’ man, while Pearlman (“Community”) will play Andre Van Horn, an energetic but stubborn trust fund baby.

Gould, Pedrad, Smith and Short were all cast in “Mulaney” when it was at the Peacock. Pearlman is a fresh addition to the project.

“Mulaney” is produced by Universal TV, Broadway Video and 3 Arts Entertainment. Mulaney, Michaels, David Miner, Dave Becky, Andrew Singer and Andy Ackerman are exec producers, and Ackerman will helm the pilot.
