Megan Hilty has joined the cast of Sean Saves The World.
The Smash star will join Sean Hayes (Will Grace) in the new NBC comedy.
Deadline reports that Lindsay Sloane played Liz, Sean’s long-time friend, in the pilot but NBC recently decided to drop her from the cast.
Here’s a synopsis for the new show: “Sean (Sean Hayes, “Will Grace”) is a divorced gay dad who juggles a lot — his successful but demanding career, offbeat employees, pushy mom Lorna (Linda Lavin, “Alice”), and weekends with his teenage daughter, Ellie (Sami Isler). So when his 14-year-old bundle of joy moves in full-time, it’s a whole new world. From keeping his boss happy, his employees motivated and enduring his mother’s tactless ‘advice’ to raising a smart, grounded and healthy kid, it’s going to be a growing experience, to say the least.”
Playbill notes that Hilty and Hayes have worked together in the past. Hayes recently guest starred on Smash as a Hollywood actor making his Broadway debut.
Both stars are pretty excited about reuniting on the new show.
