More pilot casting news…

Regina King has signed up to co-star in ABC‘s comedy pilot titled Divorce: A Love Story, from writers Mike Sikowitz & Daniel Lappin, which is based on an Israeli series.

The comedy will follow a recently divorced couple who weren’t very good for each other when they were together, and who learn that they’re even worse off now that they are apart, and can’t seem to stay out of each others’ lives. 

Regina King won’t be playing one half of the couple, unfortunately, but instead a character named Cassandra, who’s described as “a diva” and the temperamental dental hygienist wife of the best friend of the male half of the couple.

Her husband will be played by Adam Goldberg

King can currently be seen on TNT’s critically-acclaimed (though on the bubble due to non-impressive ratings) series Southland. Upcoming, her feature directorial debut – an adaptation of ReShonda Tate Billingsby’s novel Let The Church Say Amen, for BET.
