USA Casts Nathan Lane Comedy

nathan laneUSA network, originally known for its light-hearted dramedies, has picked up two half-hour comedies, one starring Nathan Lane.

The as-yet-untitled comedy will star Nathan Lane (also an executive producer) as Jasper, an unlucky actor who puts his life (and middling career) on hold to move back to his Texas hometown and care for his ailing father (played by Ken Jenkins). Scrubs alum Cheyenne Jackson’s character, Tim, is the town’s handsome doc who befriends the recent import.

USA also recently greenlit Paging Dr. Freed, a half-hour comedy pilot about two brothers who take over their father’s medical practice after his untimely death.
