Christine Taylor (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) has landed a regular role in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot Sharing, from Universal TV and Jimmy Fallon’s Eight Million Plus. It is a workplace comedy about the different groups of people working side by side in a shared office space. Taylor will play Polly, who co-owns Open Spaces with her husband Mike (Jerry Minor). She’s effervescent, type-A and no nonsense and wishes her husband would stand up for himself and to the people in the office. Taylor also is set to reprise her role as investigative reporter Matilda Jeffries in Zoolander 2. She’s repped by Nancy Gates at United.
Andrew McCarthy (Weekend At Bernie’s) has signed on to a regular role in the untitled ABC/ABC Studios drama pilot written by Jenna Bans and directed by Paul McGuigan. It follows the return of a politician’s (Joan Allen) young son, Adam Warren (Liam James), who was presumed dead after disappearing more than a decade earlier. McCarthy will play Hank, Claire and Peter’s former neighbor who spent 12 years in prison for Adam’s murder. He is repped by Brian Liebman of Liebman Entertainment.
