It’s pilot season, and a slew of comedy pilots are getting ready for production. But a half-hour project called Workers Comp is taking a different route to the small screen. First, it was written by two 19 year olds: Castille Landon and Harrison Sanborn. Within weeks of them completing the script, the pilot was funded, with David Sauers (Taking Woodstock) and former Universal Studios legal exec Mark Wooster producing. It has now been fully cast and is set to begin production April 10 in Tampa, Fla. Morgan Fairchild leads the cast of the pilot, which also includes Robert Carradine, Charley Koontz (Community), Castille Landon and Jennifer Lee Wiggins. Workers Comp is a workplace comedy about a family insurance business owned by Joan (Fairchild) and the often bizarre comp claims they are forced to manage. Fairchild is with Rebel and McGowan Mgmt; Koontz with Pakula/King and McGowan Mgmt; Carradine with Fortitude; and Wiggins and Landon with Liquid LQ.
