Former teen favorites to star in CBS pilot

April 9, 2007


Leslie Bibb will play the female lead in CBS' comedy "Atlanta," appearing opposite Freddie Prinze Jr. in the pilot.

Scripted by Paul Reiser, "Atlanta" is a single-camera comedy about two people (Prinze and now Bibb, according to Variety) who meet at a funeral and then can't stop running into each other.

Harold Ramis is directing the pilot.

On the TV front, Bibb's credits include "Popular," "Line of Fire" and "Crossing Jordan." On the big screen, she was most recently seen in the hit "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby."

In other pilot casting news, Michael Goorjian ("Party of Five") has booked a guest starring role in the Fox drama "Company Man" (formerly "NSA Innocent"). The role could become regular if "Company Man" goes to series.

The original working title of this series was "Washed up actors that are desperately trying to re-establish themselves because they blew all their money on smack and parties". Only to realize that they already have a show with that title. It was called Joey.

Ragingbear, perhaps you can help me understand: are your posts intended to be funny; do you write these things because you're angry about something; or are you just being mean?

That was pretty funny. I have a buddy who thinks he looks like Freddy Prinze Jr. Is that bizzarre? Do people really go around believing they look like somebody without anybody saying anything?
