A new comedy project for them...
Deadline reports that Sarah Chalke and Selma Blair have joined the cast of Amazon Studios' single-camera comedy pilot Really. The series is written, directed by and stars Broken Lizard's Jay Chandrasekhar. Sarah Chalke will be the female lead. Other cast members include Luka Jones, Travis Schuldt, Lindsay Sloane, Hayes MacArthur and Collette Wolfe.
The series will be executive produced by Jamie Tarses. It will be produced and financed by Main Street Films.
Here's a synopsis: Really revolves around a social and opinionated group of thirtysomething friends in Chicago. It centers on two of them, happily, messily married neurologist Jed (Chandrasekhar) and lawyer/mom Lori (Chalke). Their group of friends includes Fred (Jones) and his wife Joanna (Blair), Mike (Schuldt) and his wife Margaret (Sloane) as well as Hayes (Macarthur) and his significant other Alison (Wolfe). The dynamic in the group changes forever when Jed accidentally catches Mike and Joanna having a sexual liaison.
Chandrasekhar previously directed the pilot for Amazon's series Betas. He will also executive produce with Tarses of Fanfare Prods and both Craig Chang and Harrison Kordestani of Main Street. Production will begin soon in New Orleans.
Really joins comedy pilots The Cosmopolitans and Red Oaks, along with drama pilots Hand of God, Hysteria and the dramedy Cocked.
