CBS to Pick Up Mad Love, But Without Lizzy Caplan


CBS is close to offering a thirteen-episode order to Mad Love, a comedy about four friends from New York — two of whom fall for each other (making it thematically similar to practically every show to premiere this fall). The series, which would most likely debut mid-season, stars Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) and Jason Biggs. And in some good news for Party Down (a first!), the Starz show's Lizzy Caplan — who was in the original Mad Love pilot — will be replaced by CBS with Judy Greer, the front-runner to take over her role.
