EXCLUSIVE: Comedy Central’s 10-episode series Another Period, a send-up of turn-of-the-century Newport, Rhode Island high society, has added a string of comedic castmembers. As previously reported by Deadline back in June, the series revolves around Newport’s first family, the Bellacourts and sisters Lillian and Beatrice, respectively played by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, whose characters care only about how they look, what parties they attend and becoming famous. Joining Another Period is David Koechner (Anchorman 2), Brian Huskey (ABC’s Selfie, Matt Walsh’s A Better You), David Wain (EP Childrens Hospital, director of Wanderlust), Moshe Kasher (Drunk History) and Lauren Ash (Super Fun Night). Chris Parnell will also guest star. Koechner will portray the patriarch of the family, Commodore Bellacourt. Huskey is Victor, Lillian’s prone-to-rage-violent husband who is carrying on an affair with Beatrice’s hubby Albert played by Wain. Kasher is set as the Bellacourt family medic, Dr. Goldberg. Ash plays Hortense, Lillian and Beatrice’s weird sister. As previously reported by Deadline, Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster, Beth Dover, Brett Gelman, Jason Ritter and Armen Weitzman round out the cast of Another Period. Black will portray Peepers, the persnickety head butler with a dark secret, Brewster plays the matriarch Dodo Bellacourt; Ritter is Lillian and Beatrice’s illiterate brother Lord Frederick, the heir to the family fortune; Weitzman plays Garfield the under butler while Dover is Blanche, the head housemaid who suffers from nervous disorder and dreams of one day working in a factory. Gelman portrays Hamish, the disgruntled outwoodsman tending to Bellacourt Manor. Another Period is written and executive produced by Leggero and Lindhome, executive produced and directed by Jeremy Konner (“Drunk History”) and executive produced by Red Hour’s Ben Stiller, Debbie Liebling, Stuart Cornfeld and Mike Rosenstein.
