Rory Scovel Joins the Cast of Bill Lawrence’s TBS Pilot


Stand-up Rory Scovel, who you may know from his series of amazing Conan appearances (see below), has been added to the cast of a new TBS pilot from Spin City/Scrubs/Cougar Town creator Bill Lawrence, Deadline reports. Co-created by Lawrence and Greg Malins, the show is called Ground Floor, and it follows an Ivy League grad (Skylar Astin) who falls for his office’s high school-educated maintenance supervisor (Briga Heelan). John C. McGinley, James Earl, and Rene Gube also star. Scovel will play a character named Harvard, who got his nickname because he was the only one on his co-workers to go past high school and attend community college. Hopefully, the show will get picked up so that we can see Rory Scovel on late night TV more often.
