New York-based actress-comedian Andrea Rosen (Comedy Central’s Michael & Michael Have Issues) has landed the female lead opposite Andrew Gurland in Showtime’s comedy pilot The Andrew Gurland Project (form. Gurland On Gurland). The project, produced by Showtime in association with CBS TV Studios and Glenn Gordon Caron’s Picturemaker Prods., is a first-person documentary comedy written, directed and starring filmmaker Andrew Gurland, which reflects his real family life and the challenges he faces pursuing the next phase of his career. Gurland and Caron are executive producing. Rosen is with Gersh.
Sebastian Sozzi, Rachel Cannon and Sadie Calvano have joined Jennie Garth in the ABC Family’s half-hour comedy pilot Village People, from creator Meg DeLoatch. The project centers on Alexa (Garth), a single, high-powered career woman who adopts a baby from a teen mother (Calvano) — whom she ends up caring for as well. Sozzi and Cannon will play Alexa’s fiends Remy and Candace, respectively.
