Happy Endings alum Adam Pally and Abby Elliott (Saturday Night Live) are set as the leads of NBC’s Uninsured, a multi-camera comedy from The Goldbergs writer/co-executive producer Dan Levy, executive producer Doug Robinson and Sony Pictures TV. Pally also will serve as co-executive producer on the pilot, which also has cast as series regulars Jessy Hodges (Barry) and Amer Padha-Chatel (Beecham House).
Written by Levy, Uninsured revolves around young parents Dave (Pally) and Rebecca (Elliott), who end up having to take care of Dave’s parents who have mishandled their finances and need help to pay down a sizable debt.
Pally’s Dave is a natural hype man with a good heart. Elliott’s Rebecca is a supermom who longs for the kind of order she never can achieve in a chaotic household.
Pally and Elliott did not need a chemistry test together as they already played a couple in an episode of Pally’s ABC comedy series Happy Endings.
Hodges will play Joanna, Dave’s edgy younger sister. Chadha-Patel is Aram, Dave’s business partner who is fast talking and always trying to make a deal.
Levy executive produces with Robinson and Alison Greenspan via Robinson’s Doug Robinson Productions. Sony TV is the studio.
Pally starred as Max Blum on Happy Endings, which aired on ABC for three seasons. He stars in Champaign, Ill, for YouTube/Sony and also had starring stints on Fox/Hulu’s The Mindy Project and Fox’s Making History. Pally frequently appeared as Eric Trump on The President Show, which he produces through his Clone Wolf Production banner. He is repped by UTA, 3 Arts and Del Shaw.
Elliott is best known for her four seasons as a cast member on NBC’s Saturday Night Live from 2008-12. She recently co-starried in Bravo’s first scripted half-hour comedy, Odd Mom Out. Her other credits include Alone Together and How I Met Your Mother. She most recently appeared in Clara’s Ghost, which premiered at Sundance last year.
Hodges recent credits include a recurring role on Graves, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce and most recently PEN15. She’ll next be seen recurring on Barry.
Chadha-Patel’s TV credits include Beecham House and Year of the Rabbit.
Elliot is repped by Paradigm, MGMT and Hansen Jacobson Teller.
