CBS Casts Female Lead in Greg Garcia, Stephnie Weir Comedy Pilot (EXCLUSIVE)

Lenora Crichlow has been cast in CBS’s comedy pilot from Stephnie Weir and Greg Garcia, Variety has learned exclusively. She will star opposite Nick Zano.

The British actress is best known for starring on BBC’s “Being Human.” She showed off her comedy chops two pilot seasons ago with NBC’s short-lived comedy “A to Z” on which she was a series regular, appearing in all 13 episodes.

The untitled mutli-cam CBS comedy is about a conservative small-town family that is forced to reconcile their values when they discover their children’s lives are less than perfect.

Crichlow will play Anna, a whip-smart young woman who served in Afghanistan with Billy (Zano), the golden boy of his family who gets her pregnant.

Weir penned the pilot and will exec produce with Garcia who’s producing through his Amigos de Garcia Productions. Comedy vet James Burrows is directing the pilot. Alix Jaffe is a co-exec producer, and CBS Television Studios is producing.

Crichlow is repped by APA, Schachter/Brown and BWH Agency in the U.K.
