Rodriguez will play Juliet, Sally’s best friend. The character is described as a sexy and flamboyant party girl force of nature, who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country and who is secretly delighted when her best friend breaks up with her “boring” husband.
The cast for this keeps getting better, but my allegiance currently rests on the ‘HIMYM’ series finale.
Now, excuse me while I go listen to ‘First Date.’
She’ll play Sally, who gradually reveals how met her partner in flashback. She’s described as “a female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life. She has just figured out that she has nothing in common with her husband of less than a year. A break-up is inevitable, but Sally will find a solid circle of support in her friends and family, who are often too willing to give ‘good’ advice that can backfire badly. Meanwhile, Sally must filter out the input and decide what’s best for her.”
Gerwig will also co-write and produce and the show will shoot in New York if it goes to series.
CBS’ latest pilot almost sounds like a drama version of TV’s biggest comedy hit.
The network has ordered a series about a group of eccentric geniuses, only this gang is trying to solve the world’s problems and combat modern-age threats.
