Deadline reports comedian Rell Battle has been cast as a series regular in the Superior Donuts TV show pilot at CBS. Last month we reported CBS was reworking the pilot with an eye toward the mid-season.
Battle had a guest starring role in the original pilot written and executive produced by Neil Goldman, Garrett Donovan, and Bob Daily. Per Deadline, the show is still in the process of recasting recasting the co-lead opposite star Jermaine Fowler. Brian d’Arcy James had originally filled that role. Maz Jobrani, and David Koechner are also in the cast.
Based on the play by Tracy Letts, the Superior Donuts TV show follows the workers and customers of a Chicago donut shop.
