Newcomer Noah Galvin has booked the young lead in the ABC/ABC Studios untitled Dan Savage comedy pilot. Written by David Windsor and Casey Johnson loosely based on the life of gay activist and author Savage, the single-camera project revolves around the O’Neals, a seemingly perfect All-American family. When the youngest son, Kenny (Galvin), comes out of the closet, all the family secrets are revealed and the family proves to be quite typical and not so perfect. Galvin is repped by Stewart Talent, Global Creative – Station 3, and Jackoway Tyerman.
Annie Funke (A Most Violent Year) has joined the cast of CBS medical drama pilot LFE, from The Dan Jinks Co. and CBS TV. Written/co-executive produced by Paul Downs Colaizzo, LFE is described as a high-octane medical procedural centering on second-year residents at New York City’s top hospital as they attempt to balance their god complexes with their humanity. Funke, repped by Avalon Artists Group, Brookside Artist Management, and Peikoff/Mahan, will play Chelsi, a genius resident who works in the hospital’s internal wing.
