Lauren Lapkas and Krista Rodriguez to star in CBS comedy pilot – Deadline

Krista Rodriguez (Halston) And Lauren Lapkas (Good girls) CBS’s multi-camera comedy pilot has been tapped as the lead Calm companion, From Jane the Virgin Producer / executive producer Jenny Snyder Urman and CBS Studios, where Urman is under an overall contract.

Gracie Glassmeyer and David Rosenthal write from a story they co-wrote with Urman, Calm companion Revolves around Eliza (Rodriguez), a hot-mess alcoholic who owns a bookstore / bar with her uncle in New Orleans and is forced to live together when the court hires her exhausted quiet companion, Shelley (Lapcas).

The comedy was originally set up at Fox during the 2013-2014 cycle where it went to a single camera pilot with Justin Long as the title role and Nick Frost as co-lead. The project, written by Urman and Rosenthal, failed to reach the pilot stage and has now been recreated through a female lens.

Rodriguez’s Eliza is described as fun-loving and quick-witted. After a lot of running around with the law, she is hired by Shelley, a court-appointed sleeping companion, who will force her to deal with her monsters, do her job together and stay calm … all while running her nuts.
