Dorian Brown (Wilfred) and Mouzam Makkar (Communicators) have landed female leads in Fox comedy pilot Sober Companion. Written/exec produced by David S. Rosenthal & Jennie Snyder Urman, Sober Companion centers on Robert (Nick Frost), a charming but self-destructive attorney who finds his world turned upside down when a court-appointed sober companion (Justin Long) takes control of his life. Brown, repped by Domain and McKeon/Myones, will play Cate, Robert’s ex-wife and probably still the love of his life. Makkar, repped by Gray Talent Group and Principato Young, will play Alex, Robert’s competitive, self-confident sister. Mallory Mahoney also has joined the cast as JoanJett, Robert and Cate’s young daughter.
