Andrea Anders has landed one of the two lead roles in NBC's untitled Kari Lizer comedy pilot.
The comedy centers on two life-long female friends who are living very different lives but can't live without each other. Nicole (Andrea Anders) has everything going for her - loving parents and in-laws, adoring husband, successful siblings and a trouble-free pregnancy. Her best friend, Jen, has parents who have no faith in her, terrible instincts that led her to a 17-day marriage to a guy who dumped her, and she gained 15 pounds on the cabbage soup diet. And yet, somehow, she is Nicole's rock.
Warner Bros. TV previouly cast the actress in her first starring role on the NBC comedy Joey. She also co-starred in WBTV series, The Class and starred in ABC comedies Better Off Ted and Mr. Sunshine.
