EXCLUSIVE: The Secret Life Of The American Teenager co-star Megan Park has been cast as a regular on NBC’s midseason multi-camera comedy series Undateable, from Warner Bros. TV and Bill Lawrence’s Doozer Prods. The bromantic comedy centers on Danny (Chris D’Elia) and Justin (Brent Morin) — two very different guys who are bonded by their common inability to attract women. Park will play Nicki, the eternally optimistic young waitress who is a recent transplant to Detroit from a small town in the Upper Peninsula. She’s treated like a little sister by all the regulars at Justin’s bar, but Justin secretly has feelings for her. The role has been vacant since originally cast Aly Michalka exited before the taping of the pilot. Briga Heelan, stepped in at the last minute to play the role in the pilot as a guest star as she was the female lead in Lawrence’s TBS comedy pilot Ground Floor, which was picked up to series the same day as Undateable, making her unavailable to continue on the NBC show. This is one of two regular roles on Undateable that have been recast. In the other one, David Flynn replaced Matthew Wilkas. Park is with Paradigm and Joannie Burstein.
