Jeffrey Tambor, Kyle Bornheimer
Jeffrey Tambor will reunite with the creator of Arrested Development as a cast member of The Bridget Show, a Mitchell Hurwitz-produced comedy pilot for ABC.
The Bridget Show stars Gilmore gal Lauren Graham as a former talk-show queen attempting a comeback after a disastrous romance. Tambor will play Bridget's business manager.
In other ABC pilot news, Kyle Bornheimer's Worst Week may very well be over, now that he has landed a lead — playing Eric Christian' Olsen's needy buddy — on an untitled comedy from Ricky Blitt.
Also, Amanda Bynes (What I Like About You) is one of the Canned employees in a comedy about a corporate shake-up, while Lourdes Benedicto (The Nine) and Laura Vandervoort (Smallville) have boarded ABC's V reboot, playing Morris Chestnut's love interest and a Visitor, respectively.
