Ron Livingston (Office Space, The Conjuring) has been tapped as the lead in Loudermilk, AT&T Audience Network’s new half-hour scripted comedy created by Peter Farrelly and former Colbert Report writer Bobby Mort.
The 10-episode series centers on Dave Loudermilk (Livingston), a recovering alcoholic and substance abuse counselor with an extremely bad attitude. He’s unapologetically uncensored and manages to anger everyone in his life. To Dave, a stranger is just an enemy he hasn’t met yet. Although he’s got his drinking under control, his life is one step forward, 12 steps back.
Loudermilk is from Primary Wave Entertainment, which will co-finance and co-produce in its first foray into scripted half-hour series. Farrelly (There’s Somethng About Mary) and Mort will showrun and executive produce with Primary Wave’s Mark Burg and David Guillod. Production is slated to begin next month in Vancouver.
This marks a return to comedy series for Livingston, who has done primarily drama fare since his memorable stint on HBO’s Sex and the City.
Livingston’s recent films include The 5th Wave with Chloe Grace Moretz, The End of the Tour with Jason Segal, James White with Cynthia Nixon and Joe Swanberg’s Digging for Fire. He’ll be seen in Oren Uziel’s upcoming crime thriller Shimmer Lake and Eddie O’Keefe’s Shangri-La Suite, playing Elvis Presley. His TV credits include HBO’s Band of Brothers and Boardwalk Empire. Livingston is repped by JB Roberts and Thruline, UTA and Adam Kaller.
