Rochelle Aytes (Detroit 1-8-7) has been cast in another project for the network, comedy pilot Work It. The multicamera project, from Andrew Reich and Ted Cohen, is about out-of-work car salesmen Lee (Ben Koldyke) and Angel (Amaury Nolasco), who realize that it is a woman’s world and decide that to find work again and succeed, they must dress as women to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps. Aytes, who also co-starred on ABC’s The Forgotten and did an arc on Desperate Housewives, will play Lee and Angel’s new boss.
Rhea Seehorn has been added to NBC’s untitled Whitney Cummings comedy pilot. The project, written by Cummings, centers on young couple Whitney (Cummings) and Alex (Chris D’Elia), who tackle the ups and downs of a committed relationship torn between their friends Lily (Zoe Lister-Jones) and Neal (Maulik Pancholy), who think that everyone has to tie the knot, and Mark and Roxanne (Seehorn), who think no one should. Roxeanne is described as a no-B.S. divorcee stuck paying alimony to a loser ex-husband. Seehorn, repped by Phoenix Artists and Untitled, recently co-starred in TNT’s Allan Loeb pilot.
