True Blood alumna Anna Camp has become the first actress cast in the NBC comedy pilot I Hate That I Love You, landing one of the four leads in the single-camera project from writer-exec producer Jhoni Marchinko and 20th TV. It is described as a twisty romantic comedy in which a straight couple, Brad and Missy, introduce their lesbian roommates, Brad’s Allie and Missy’s Sarah (Camp), to each other. Allie and Sarah hit it off but things get complicated when Allie becomes pregnant with Brad’s baby.
Michael “Mookie” Blaikock (Secret Girlfriend) has joined the ABC/20th TV comedy pilot Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23. Written by Nahnatchka Khan, the project centers on June (Dreama Walker), an earnest, honest, optimistic girl from the heartland who is forced to move in with Chloe (Krysten Ritter), a sexy, unstable New York City party girl who has the morals of a pirate. Blaikock, repped by Innovative and Andy Corren Management, will play Eli, the preppy perv-next-door.
