Braun joins Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”), who will play the other half of the couple in the pilot, which will be exec produced by “How I Met Your Mother” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.
Braun will play Wade, a charming guy who’s always had things come easy for him — friends, girls, jobs — which is why he decided to move to L.A. and give the big city a shot. Real adult life turns out to be a shock, and it’s a lot harder to get what he wants than he realized, but he’s actually looking for something bigger, though he doesn’t know it yet. Levy, who plays Braun’s on-screen girlfriend, will play Marla, an inherent optimist living in New York City who wants to be a playwright but is having trouble breaking away from a traditional life for that of an artist.
Braun’s other credits include “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”; “Poltergeist”; “How to Be Single,” which hits theaters this weekend; and the upcoming “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” alongside Tina Fey.
Written by Hilary Winston, “My Time/Your Time” is based on the Web series “7P/10E” by Avital Ash. Winston, Bays and Thomas will all serve as exec producers, along with “How I Met Your Mother” alum Pamela Fryman, who will direct the pilot. CBS Television Studios and Sony Pictures Television will produce.
Braun is repped by UTA, Brillstein and Jamie Mandelbaum.
