EXCLUSIVE: Brie Larson has nabbed the female lead opposite Michael Angarano in CBS’ single-camera comedy pilot from feature writer-director Nick Stoller (The Muppets). Stoller wrote and will direct the untitled project, a twentysomething ensemble comedy that centers on Jake (Angarano), a commitment-phobic ad agency exec who, after getting dumped by his longtime girlfriend Laura (Larson), realizes he has to continue working with her one cubicle away. Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV are producing. Larson, repped by Gersh and ROAR, co-starred on Showtime’s dark comedy United States Of Tara and will next be seen in the 21 Jump Street feature reboot.
