Utkarsh Ambudkar (The Mindy Project) has been cast opposite Nicholas Braun and Jane Levy in My Time/Your Time, CBS’ hybrid comedy pilot from Hilary Winston and How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. Based on the web series 7P/10E by Avital Ash, My Time/Your Time chronicles the relationship of a young couple — Marla (Levy) and Wade (Braun) — as they begin dating long distance. Ambudkar will play Jay, Wade’s friend and co-worker who looks like a slacker/surfer dude on the surface but is secretly ambitious. Ambudkar next will be seen in Barbershop 3 and recurs on The Mindy Project as Mindy’s brother Rishi. He’s repped by Gersh, 3 Arts and Jackoway Tyreman.
Australian actress Claudia Doumit has joined the cast of Time, NBC’s action adventure drama pilot from Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, Sony Pictures TV and studio-based Davis Entertainment. Described as “Back to the Future meets Mission: Impossible,” Time is a high-octane drama following an unlikely trio who travel through time to battle a master criminal intent on altering the fabric of human history with potentially catastrophic results. Doumit, repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Authentic, will play Jiya. Doumit, who was in last year’s ABC Diversity Showcase, has a recurring role on Scandal and can be seen in the upcoming Olivia Milch-directed indie Dude.
