Ben Schwartz is returning to Showtime. Deadline reports the House of Lies star has joined the network’s upcoming TV pilot, The Wrong Mans.
A remake of the 2013 James Corden series, the action comedy “follows two ordinary office workers (one played by Ben Schwartz) who have their menial existence turned upside-down by a chance phone call and a case of mistaken identity: ‘”If you are not here by 5 o’clock, we will kill your wife.'”
James Corden will executive produce Showtime‘s The Wrong Mans pilot alongside Matthew Baynton, J.J. Abrams, Ben Stephenson, Ian Maxtone-Graham, and Jim Field Smith.
