Sean Saves the World co-star Echo Kellum is staying at NBC with a co-starring role in the single-camera comedy pilot Two To Go, from Universal TV and studio-based David Janollari Entertainment and Jason Bateman‘s Aggregate. Written/co-exec produced by Bryan Shukoff and Kevin Chesley, the project centers on longtime best friends Kurt and Laura, who grapple with the challenges of modern-day dating while their group of friends try and prove that they are destined to be together. Kellum, repped by TalentWorks, Odenkirk Provissiero, and Melissa Fox, plays one of the friends, a stay-at-home dad. He previously co-starred on the Fox comedy series Ben and Kate.
Former Common Law co-lead Warren Kole has booked a role in Janollari’s other NBC pilot, drama Salvation, from writer Liz Heldens. The family saga is set against the backdrop of a Texas mega church where faith, family and corruption are explored in equal measure. Kole, repped by the Kohner Agency, Sanders Armstrong Caserta and Stuart Rosenthal, plays Jacob, a charismatic, fresh-out-of-jail, fire-and-brimstone, rattlesnake-handling, poison-drinking Pentecostal preacher who found his faith in prison. He recently recurred on Fox’s The Following.
