Linda from HR: Thread #1

Linda from HR

Is it too early to start this thread? Obviously the project is in the very early stages, but I figured it might be useful to have one place to discuss this pilot.

Lauren Graham to star in new Fox comedy pilot

Lauren Graham to Star in ‘Linda From HR’: Fox Comedy Pilot | TVLine
Quote:
Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham has signed on to star in Fox’s half-hour, single-camera comedy pilot Linda From HR, TVLine has learned. Graham’s casting lifts the cast contingency on the pilot order....Up-and-coming writers Itai Grunfeld and Geoff Barbanell penned the pilot script and will serve as EPs alongside Tracy Katsky, Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor. Sitcom vet Marc Buckland (My Name is Earl, Scrubs) will direct.

Quote:
Written by Geoff Barbanell and Itai Grunfeld and directed by Marc Buckland, Linda From HR centers on the eponymous heroine, Linda Plugh (Graham). All it takes is one bad decision to throw Linda from HR’s monotonous, unfulfilled life into an exciting but dangerous tailspin of balancing work life, home life and a secret that could unravel everything.

I like the idea of being organized and easily knowing where to find things. I hope the show sticks around, too, and I have good feelings about it right now.

Ragga, I'm curious about costars, too!

So what does the "pilot contingency" mean? They wouldn't shoot the pilot unless they could cast a big name? Or that person would agree to do the series if it got picked up?

I wonder...

ETA: Duh, I googled it. Here's what it means, if anyone else was unsure:

CAST-CONTINGENT/CAST CONTINGENCY | Sometimes a network will order a pilot with the caveat that production can’t start until a suitable, usually “name” actor has been cast in the starring role. (A possible translation: “The premise is iffy, but a big star could really help sell it.”) So you’ll sometimes hear that with the casting of so-and-so, “the cast contingency has been lifted” on a pilot. (The sorta flip-side is an “if-come deal,” meaning the major players are pre-signed and rarin’ to go the instant the network OKs the pilot itself.)

Ooh, thanks for the news! I like Tim DeKay so that makes me happy, and I'm not very familiar with Zachary Knighton, but he looks cute.
