A lot of new actors are coming to HBO’s new pilot, A Lot. Deadline reports Lucy Punch, Brett Goldstein, Jenn Tullock, and Krystal Smith have been cast in the show.
The project comes from comedian Whitney Cummings, who will also star and co-write the half-hour series.
A Lot stars Cummings as a successful woman dealing with the “biological and cultural differences between the sexes.” The series is inspired by Maureen Dowd’s book, Are Men Necessary?: When Sexes Collide.
Punch is Izzy, a close friend of Amanda’s who is in her first romantic relationship with a woman. Goldstein plays Max, Amanda’s live-in boyfriend who designs hand-drawn wall paper and makes very little money. Tullock plays Lou, Amanda’s freshly divorced friend. Smith is Opal, Amanda’s new and outspoken assistant.”
