Chris Smith & Elizabeth Ho To Topline NBC’s Matt Hubbard Comedy Pilot

Chris Smith and Elizabeth Ho have been cast as the leads in NBC’s untitled Matt Hubbard comedy pilot, from former 30 Rock co-executive producer Hubbard and Parks & Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator/executive producer Mike Schur. The single-camera project revolves around Andrew (Smith) and Josie (Ho), a happily married interracial couple whose lives take a turn when they move close to Josie’s family in Missouri. Andrew is a likable nerd, a lawyer, while Josie is hard-charging woman who has never failed at anything.

Hubbard wrote the project, loosely based on his life, and executive produces with Schur and 3 Arts’ David Miner.

Smith previously played the main lead in the CBS comedy series We Are Men and co-starred in CBS’ pilot Taxi-22, both single-camera. In features, he starred in Paranormal Activity 3 and had supporting roles in Nicole Holofcener’s Enough Said and Mira Nair’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist. He is repped by UTA, Principato-Young Entertainment and attorney Melissa Fox.

Ho, whose series credits include Rake and Melissa & Joey, is repped by the Stone Manners Salners Agency and Vincent Cirrincione & Assoc.
