New CBS Comedy Casts Lead Actress Deadline

A new CBS comedy project has its lead actress. Writing on Deadline.com, Nellie Andreeva reports that the half-hour pilot "Save the Date" cast "Psych" actress Maggie Lawson as its lead.

The romantic comedy comes from writers Jackie and Jeff Filgo, ABC Studios and CBS TV Studios. "It centers on 35-year-old and newly single Kate (Lawson), who drunkenly books a wedding venue and now is faced with the task of meeting the right man in time," Andreeva writes. "The format of the project is hybrid, in the vein of 'How I Met Your Mother': a multi-camera comedy employing shorter scenes and no live audience."

Lawson is known for her long run as Juliet O’Hara on USA’s "Psych," and starred earlier this season on ABC's "Back In The Game," the report notes.
