Better Off Ted

(2009)

Better Off Ted is a satirical office comedy featuring a successful but morally conscious man, Ted, who runs a research and development department at a morally questionable corporation, Veridian Technologies. No achievement is too far fetched and no invention too unorthodox for Veridian. Need a suicidal turkey? Done. Need a metal that is hard as steel but bounces - and is edible? Done and done. Ted loves his seemingly perfect job; he loves his superhuman boss, Veronica, and colleagues Lem, Phil and Linda, but he's starting to take a closer look at the company's extremely questionable practices... especially when they try to cryogenically freeze one of Ted's scientists for testing purposes.

Jay Harrington to Star in NBC Pilot ‘Nathan Vs. Nurture’

Despite any official word on Better Off Ted's cancellation, it seems the show's star has found a new gig. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jay Harrington has been cast as the lead for the new NBC pilot Nathan vs. Nurture.

Harrington will play a dedicated, overachieving heart surgeon, who reunites with his birth father and slacker brothers 35 years after his adoption. It was said that the gig is technically in second position to ABC's Better Off Ted, although the series wasn't expected to be renewed.
