Briga Heelan (Ground Floor, Undateable) has been cast as the lead in NBC’s untitled Tracey Wigfield comedy pilot from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. She joins co-lead Andrea Martin, Kimrie Lewis-Davis and Adam Campbell.
Written by Wigfield, the single-camera comedy centers on Katie (Heelan), whose already inseparable relationship with her mother Carol (Martin) becomes more complicated when Carol accepts an internship at Katie’s workplace, a news program where Katie is a segment producer.
Wigfield exec produces with Fey, Carlock and David Miner. Universal TV is the studio.
Heelan, repped by Gersh and Thruline, is recurring on Judd Apatow’s new Netflix comedy series Love, which has been garnering solid reviews, including for Heelan’s performance.
