Becki Newton has signed on to play one of the title characters in the pilot, which comes from writer Michael Weithorn (creator of “The King of Queens”) and director Jake Kasdan (“New Girl,” “Freaks and Geeks”). It’s about four social misfits who form a bond with one another via living in the same townhouse in Queens.
Newton’s character, Caryn, is a “high-strung” dental hygienist with a tendency to go all-in on relationships way too quickly. Her co-stars thus far are “Happy Endings” alum Zachary Knighton and Nate Torrence (“Hello Ladies,” “Super Fun Night”); the fourth member of the core group has yet to be cast.
Newton last starred in “The Goodwin Games” for FOX. Prior to that, she was a regular on “Ugly Betty” and “Love Bites” and had a recurring part on “How I Met Your Mother.”
