NBC’s ‘Beach Lane’ rounds out cast

Patton Oswalt, Kristen Johnston join Broderick sitcom

NBC has rounded out the cast of its Matthew Broderick comedy pilot “Beach Lane,” adding comedian Patton Oswalt (“Ratatouille”) and “3rd Rock From the Sun” alum Kristen Johnston to the mix.

Show revolves around the world of a millionaire (Oswalt) who hires a celebrity author (Broderick) to run his struggling Hamptons newspaper.

Oswalt became available after the play “Lips Together, Teeth Apart” — in which he was set to make his Broadway debut — fell apart at the last minute.

The play was indefinitely postponed after co-star Megan Mullally ankled ( Daily Variety , March 25).

Paul Simms created “Beach Lane,” which also comes from Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video.
