NBC has set the main cast for its upcoming comedy pilot “Bright Futures,” Variety has learned.
Emily Ratajkowski, Lilly Singh, Shameik Moore, Jimmy Tatro, and Calum Worthy will all star in the single-camera project, which follows a group of friends all stumbling through the transition from the clueless, immature twentysomethings they are now to the successful professionals they’re destined to be. In addition, Lisa Kudrow will serve as the show’s narrator.
Singh will play Sid. One of the roommates, she’s a recent med school graduate and who became a doctor mostly so people would call her a doctor. Singh is best known for her incredibly popular YouTube channel, where she vlogs under the name IISuperwomanII. Her recent onscreen roles include the film “Bad Moms” and “Ice Age: Collision Course.” She is also set to appear in Michael B. Jordan’s HBO film adaptation of “Fahrenheit 451,” and was selected as one of Variety‘s 10 Comics to Watch in 2016. She is repped by WME and manager Sarah Weichel.
The official teaser for HBO’s upcoming Television movie ‘Fahrenheit 451’ was released on February 26.
