EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Hansen and Aimee Carrero will play the leads in Someone Out There, NBC’s romantic comedy pilot based on a Spanish format. Actor-writer Neil Casey also has been cast in the project, from Matt Hubbard and the writing team of Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan.
Written/executive produced by Hubbard, Siegal and Morgan, Someone Out There is based on the Spanish format Pequeñas Coincidencias created by Javier Veiga. The single-camera romantic comedy is about two set-in-their-ways adults, Derek (Hansen) and Chloe (Carrero), who are challenged by very unexpected strangers to become the best versions of themselves in order to find love and possibly each other.
Dylan Morgan, Emiliano Calemzuk, Gonzalo Sagardia and Veiga also executive produce.
Hansen’s Derek is a film composer who thinks he has it all. Carrero’s Chloe is a no-nonsense bridal boutique owner. Casey plays Boyd, Derek’s sad sack brother.

He will next be seen in the features Fantasy Island, Like a Boss and Dinner with Friends (aka Friendsgiving). He is repped by Gersh.

Her credits include recurring roles on NBC’s Blindspot and The Village, and FX’s The Americans. Her latest film, Wander Darkly, premiered at Sundance in January.
