ABC's untitled comedy pilot from
Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick has recast its female lead, following the first table read. Per the
Reporter, Ayda Field (
Back to You's bodacious weathercaster) has claimed the role previously assigned to Sarah LaFleur.
The pilot centers on two men - one gay (Alan Tudyk), one straight (Josh Cooke) - who are best buds and business partners. Field will play Cooke's girlfriend. LaFleur, who has a talent deal with ABC, is expected to surface on another series. - Matt Mitovich
