TBS Greenlights "Ground Floor," New Sitcom from Emmy(R) Mominees Bill Lawrence and Greg Malins

Skylar Astin, Briga Heelan and John C. McGinley Star in Workplace Comedy with a Romantic Twist

TBS has greenlit Ground Floor, a new workplace comedy with a romantic twist written by Emmy(R) nominees Bill Lawrence (Cougar Town, Scrubs, Clone High) and Greg Malins (2 Broke Girls, How I Met Your Mother). The series stars Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), Briga Heelan (Cougar Town) and John C. McGinley (Scrubs). Ground Floor is being produced by Lawrence's Doozer, in association with Warner Horizon Television, with Lawrence and Jeff Ingold (Like Father) serving as executive producers. TBS has ordered 10 episodes of the series, which will premiere on the network in 2014.

Ground Floor is set in the modern world of corporate America. The show centers on Brody (Astin), a young hot-shot banker at Whitestone Trust who thought he was just having a one-night stand with Jennifer (Heelan), a beautiful woman he met at a bar. But when he discovers that she works in maintenance for the building where he works, their worlds begin to collide in the most unexpected way. Facing Brody's critical boss, Mr. Mansfield (McGinley), as well as annoyed colleagues, the pair must find a way to deal with their growing feelings for each other in this modern take on Romeo & Juliet.

Starring as Jennifer's co-workers in the building's maintenance office are Rory Scovel (Zach Stone is Going to be Famous) as Harvard, a know-it-all who's secretly enamored with her; James Earl (Glee) as Derrick, who brings a laid-back quality to the office; and Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect) as Tori, a sexy young woman who loves to hit the clubs every night. In addition, Rene Gube (Upright Citizens Brigade) stars as Brody's colleague Threepeat, a money manager in love with his hair gel.

"Ground Floor is a smart and extremely funny comedy that blends workplace humor with relatable romantic entanglements," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "It's all brought together by a wonderful ensemble. With Ground Floor, we're thrilled to be extending our creative partnership with Cougar Town's Bill Lawrence.
