Actors Nate Torrence (She’s Out of My League) and Kevin Weisman (Alias, Clerks 2) have been cast for Stephen Merchant’s new pilot for HBO, Hello Ladies.
Deadline reports that Torrence and Weisman will be co-starring in the pilot with Merchant, who is also writing and directing. Merchant stars as Steven, an awkward Englishman desperately searching for love in Los Angeles. Torrence is set to play Steven’s best friend and recent divorcee Wade. Weisman will play obnoxious friend Kives, who has an uncanny ability to charm women.
The pilot is slated to shoot before the end of the year and HBO is co-producing with ABC Studios. Merchant co-created the series with Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupitsky, former writer-producers on The Office.
