The likelihood of ABC picking up the irreverent single-camera office comedy "Better Off Ted" for another season lessened after a casting announcement at NBC today.
The sitcom’s star, Jay Harrington, has been cast in the NBC pilot "Nathan Vs. Nurture," reports Variety.
The new comedy casts Harrington as the title character, a super-successful heart surgeon who discovers he was adopted, then meets his biological siblings who haven’t achieved his lofty standards.
"Nathan" could lose Harrington’s services if ABC opts to renew "Ted," as it is considered in the second position on Harrington’s slate.
