Andy Ridings (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) is set as the male lead in ABC’s untitled Weeks/Mackay comedy pilot.
Written by The Mindy Project co-star Ed Weeks & Hannah Mackay (Peep Show) and directed by Leslye Headland, the single-camera project centers on lesbian Hilda and her best friend Randall (Ridings), a neurotic straight guy, as they navigate their dysfunctional, co-dependent friendship and the world of dating.
Weeks and Mackay co-executive produce. Andrew Reich, who supervised the writers, executive produces.
Ridings, who recently recurred on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, is repped by Stone Manners Salners Agency, Bleecker Street Entertainment and lawyer Mitch Smelkinson.
