It's not like Chuck fans didn't expect Zachary Levi to move on. But so soon? Apparently he has. Zachary Levi has been cast in a comedy pilot in contention for next season on FOX. What kind of comedy? What role will the Chuck star play? Keep reading to find out!
According to a report from Deadline.com
, Zachary Levi has been cast as the male lead in the FOX comedy pilot, Let It Go
. Levi's casting means that the pilot -- which was formerly cast-contingent -- is set to begin production in the coming months. If picked up for series, the pilot of Let It Go
will air at some point in the 2012-2013 season.
The basic premise of Let It Go
centers around a married couple (Zachary Levi will play the husband) who, along with the husband's best friend and the wife's sister, try to "navigate, negotiate and sometimes manipulate society's unspoken rules."
What does all that mean? Unfortunately, we'll probably have to wait until much later in the pilot season before any more specifics come our way.
At least the basics of Let It Go
could work. Even if there aren't any spies or supercomputers.
The comedy will be in the single camera format -- meaning (thankfully) no laugh track -- and was written by DJ Nash. Nash will executive produce the show along with Peter Tolan and Michael Wilmer.
No announcements have been made with regard to the rest of the casting of Let It Go
. And, however, cool it would be for Chuck
fans to get a cast reunion, we probably can't expect any more Chuck
actors as regulars on the show (even though most are
available...).Let It Go
would not be the first half-hour comedy for Zachary Levi. Between 2002 and 2006, he co-starred in the comedy, Less Than Perfect
, as Kipp Steadman. That show lasted four seasons before cancellation.
