EXCLUSIVE: Georgia King, the breakout female star of NBC’s comedy series The New Normal, has been tapped as the female lead of another comedy project with two guys at the center, CBS‘ multi-camera pilot The Odd Couple starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon. Co-written and executive produced by Perry, the project, a take on the Neil Simon classic, revolves around two mismatched roommates — the messy Oscar Madison (Perry) and neat freak Felix Unger (Lennon). Scottish-born King, repped by Paradigm and Independent Talent Group, will play Katie, a model who lives in Oscar and Felix’s building.
