Becki Newton is set as the lead character in Fox’s six-episode, single-camera ensemble comedy series Weird Loners, written by Michael Weithorn and directed by Jake Kasdan for 20th TV. It tells the story of four relationship-phobic people, three of them played by Newton, Zachary Knighton and Nate Torrence, who are unexpectedly thrust into one another’s lives and form an unlikely bond in a townhouse in Queens, NY. Newton’s Caryn is a high-strung dental hygienist who is a pushover where handsome, charming men are concerned, but who always comes on too strong and fast for any relationship to last. This marks a return to Fox for the always-in-demand Newton who toplined the network’s comedy series The Goodwin Games last season. The Ugly Betty and How I Met Your Mother alumna is with UTA, Management 360 and SMGSB. Weithorn and Kasdan exec produce Weird Loners with Kasdan’s producing partner Melvin Mar.
