NBC Comedy Pilot ‘Holding Patterns’ Recasts Role

666 Park Avenue alum Robert Buckley has exited NBC’s comedy pilot Holding Patterns after the table read. The project, from writer Justin Spitzer, Peter Traugott’s TBD Prods and Universal TV, is an ensemble multi-camera comedy about a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash. Buckley was to play one of them, Chad, Griffin’s (Humphrey Ker) and Leah’s (Chyler Leigh) arrogant, misogynistic friend, now a successful chick-lit author who returns home for the wedding. I hear among the reasons for Buckley’s departure was the fact that when the cast got together for the table read, it became apparent that Buckley looks a lot like Ker, while the producers have been looking for a more dramatic differentiation between the two characters. Buckley is the latest actor to leave a pilot this season as the networks rush to cast some 100 pilots within six weeks.

Meghan Ory To Star In CBS’ ‘Intelligence’, Robert Buckley Cast In ‘Holding Patterns’

EXCLUSIVE: Once Upon A Time‘s Meghan Ory has been cast as the female lead opposite Josh Holloway in CBS’ drama pilot Intelligence, which co-stars Marg Helgenberger. Also joining the pilot, created/executive produced by Michael Seitzman, exec produced by Rene Echevarria and Tripp Vinson and directed/exec produced by David Semel, is P.J. Byrne. For Ory, who is a regular on Once, Intelligence is in first position. Both Once and Intelligence are produced by ABC Studios, which allowed the flexibility. After recurring heavily on Season 1 of Once, Ory was promoted to regular in part because of interest for pilots she received last season. Her character Ruby has not been as prominently featured in this season’s storylines as it was last season. Intelligence is centered at U.S. Cyber Command and focuses on a unit that has been created around one agent (Holloway) with a very special gift — a microchip has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Ory, repped by Gersh and Canada’s Pacific Artists, will play Riley O’Neil, an ex Secret Service taking on the challenge of protecting the nation’s top intelligence asset. Read More »
