Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf) is set as the lead in Crazy for You, and Alice Lee (Brittany Runs a Marathon), Tiana Okoye (Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens) and Nick Cafero (Pitch Perfect) have been cast as series regulars in NBC’s dating comedy from former Saturday Night Live producer Rachele Lynn, fellow SNL alum Seth Meyers and SNL boss Lorne Michaels.

Written by Lynn, Crazy for You is about Daisy (Hennig) who, with her life stalling, re-enters the dating scene only to discover that while she was out of the game, the game sort of, totally, completely changed. Realizing she is a bit rusty at being “normal” and “appealing” on first dates, she’ll need the support of her friends as she strives to succeed while being her true self in today’s quick-to-dismiss dating culture.
