Ground Floor star Briga Heelan will play the female lead opposite Sam Huntington in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot How We Live, written by Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley and directed by Gail Mancuso. The project centers on Russell (Huntington), a blogger, and his bubbly, full of energy wife Holly (Heelan) who move to the suburbs where he begins writing about marriage and the family lives of his suburban friends and neighbors in the style of an anthropologist who’s stumbled on an undiscovered tribe. Holly pours her energy into everything in her life, most recently trying to get pregnant, a challenge that is pushing her endless optimism to its limits. In addition to her starring role on TBS’ Ground Floor, Heelan recently co-starred on the first season of NBC comedy Undateable. Her Ground Floor co-lead Skylar Austin also landed a lead role in a broadcast comedy pilot, ABC’s NBA project. Heelan is with Gersh and Thuline.
