Krista Allen 'Held Up' by Comedy Central
Bank robbery comedy will star Jack Carpenter
Produced by Sony Pictures TV, "Held Up" stars relative unknown Carpenter as a bank teller whose life is turned upside down by two groups of wacky robbers. How wacky are the robbers? They show up disguised as James Bond, Spider-Man, Batman and the Three Stooges. Now that's wacky.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Allen will play the main character's boss, an object of both hatred and (since this is the star of "Emmanuelle: A World of Desire" we're talking about) lust.
This past development season, Allen starred in the NBC comedy pilot "Business Class." A regular on HBO's "Unscripted," Allen has made appearances on a wide variety of shows including "Baywatch," "Charmed," "Freddie" and, most recently, "What About Brian." She also appeared in the Bravo season of "Project Greenlight" and the subsequent feature "Feast."
