According to The Hollywood Reporter, Andrea Anders of NBC's Joey has landed a new series gig. Anders and Jon Bernthal have joined the cast of CBS' upcoming comedy series The Class, while Jay Harrington has joined Jane Krakowski in another CBS comedy project, the pilot Sex Power Love & Politics. At UPN, Wendy Raquel Robinson has been tapped to star in the potential spinoff of the network's long-running comedy Girlfriends, tentatively titled The Game.
The Class, from Warner Bros. TV, begins with a party thrown by 27-year-old Ethan (Jason Ritter) for his girlfriend, whom he met in the third grade. Ethan invites six other people who were in the class with them, all of whom have lost touch with one another. The party then becomes the springboard for following how the lives of the reunited characters continue to intersect.
