'Men in Trees' Co-Star Moves to 'Suburbia'
Cynthia Stevenson joins CW comedy; HBO's 'Hung' gets female lead
Stevenson will star opposite Bob Saget in The CW's comedy series, which debuts in the fall. In other casting news, Jane Adams ("Little Children") will play the female lead in HBO's pilot "Hung," and comedian Mike MacRae has joined TBS' sketch show "Frank TV," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Surviving Suburbia" stars Saget as a misanthrope who wants nothing more than to be left a lone in his suburban home. It will be part of The CW's Sunday lineup, all of which will be produced by studio Media Rights Capital, starting in September.
Stevenson will play Saget's wife. In addition to "Men in Trees," her credits include "Dead Like Me" and the '90s sitcom "Hope & Gloria" and the movies "Home for the Holidays" and "Happiness."
"Hung" follows a high school basketball coach (Thomas Jane) who uses his endowment to improve his lot in life. Adams, whose credits also include "The Wackness" and "The Brave One," will play a single woman who comes into contact with Jane's character.
On "Frank TV," comedian and impressionist MacRae will help lighten the load on Frank Caliendo, playing multiple characters in the late-night sketch show. Its second season is due in October.
