From Bill Lawrence (“Scrubs,” “Spin City,” “Cougar Town,” “Clone High”) and Adam Sztykiel (“Due Date,” “Made of Honor”), “Undateable” is a new comedy series about a group of friends who are this close to finding a relationship — they just need a little help.
Whether it’s lack of style, the wrong job, or even just a bad haircut (Bill Lawrence, peroxide blonde hair, 1994), everyone goes through a time in their life when they’re undateable. Most of us eventually grow out of it, but some people need a little more help than others. Enter Danny Burton (Chris D’Elia, “Whitney”). Confident, attractive and impervious to outside opinions, 29-year-old Danny — who may be in a state of arrested development himself — decides to help out his new roommate, Justin Kearney (comedian Brent Morin), the owner of an unsuccessful bar and a chronic over thinker, and Justin’s group of oddball friends — Shelly (comedian Ron Funches), Burski (comedian Rick Glassman) and Brett (David Fynn, “Game of Thrones”). Danny introduces the gang to his older sister, Leslie (Bianca Kajilich, “Rules of Engagement”), who is recently divorced and immediately bonds with this group of guys, as she feels a little stuck in her own life as well. The gang spends most of their time at Justin’s bar, helping solve their respective problems over beers, and though they’re very quick to give each other shit, they always have each other’s backs.
Executive produced by Lawrence Sztykiel, and Jeff Ingold (“Ground Floor,” “Surviving Jack”) “Undateable” is inspired by the book “Undateable: 311 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won’t Be Dating or Having Sex” by Ellen Rakieten & Anne Coyle. The series is produced by Doozer in association with Warner Bros. Television.
