Brian Austin Green (The Wedding Band) and Super Fun Night alumna Liza Lapira are set to co-star opposite Jenna Elfman in Fox’s untitled Dana Klein comedy pilot, from 20th Century Fox TV and Kapital Entertainment. Written/exec produced by Klein and directed by Pam Fryman, it is told from the point of view of Ellen (Elfman), a working mom who is in constant competition with her perfect, stay-at-home sister-in-law Amy (Lapira). Green plays Amy’s husband Jack Stanley, an undisciplined, laid back, rule breaker who pretty much does whatever he wants and doesn’t worry about the consequences (except when it comes to his wife, Amy, who terrifies him). Matt Letscher was previously cast as the other Stanley brother, Ellen’s husband Matt.
Green, repped by ICM Partners and Interlink Management, recently co-starred on Anger Management. Lapira recurs on new CBS series Battle Creek.
