Sarah Silverman's NBC Show Casts Ken Leung And Tig Notaro
Sarah Silverman's getting two new friends for her NBC pilot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Lost" star Ken Leung and comedian Tig Notaro will appear alongside Silverman in the comedy project loosely based on Silverman's life.
Leung, who played Miles on "Lost," will play Gene, a tenant in Silverman's building who spends most of his time with a blanket in front of his TV. Since the end of "Lost" in 2010, Leung made a guest appearance on "The Good Wife."
Notaro, who appeared on Silverman's Comedy Central series, "The Sarah Silverman Program," will play a mother and fellow tenant in Silverman's character's apartment building. Notaro's character is described as an eccentric woman.
The show follows Silverman's character as she adjusts to life as a newly single woman after ending a committed, decade-long relationship. Silverman co-wrote the project with fellow "Sarah Silverman Program" veterans Dan Sterling and Jon Schroeder.
According to TVLine, the pilot cast also includes Harris Wittels and June Diane Raphael.
