EXCLUSIVE: Michael Angarano (Haywire) has landed the lead in CBS’s single-camera comedy pilot from feature writer-director Nick Stoller (The Muppets). Stoller wrote and will direct the untitled project loosely based on his real-life experiences. It is a twentysomething ensemble comedy that centers on Jake (Angarano), a commitment phobic ad agency exec who, after breaking up with his girlfriend, realizes he has to continue working with her one cubicle away. Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV are producing. Angarano’s series credits include arcs on 24 and Will & Grace. He recently wrapped the features The English Teacher and The Brass Teapot.
