ABC Casts Justin Long in Semi-Improvised Comedy ‘Irreversible’

By

Back in February, ABC announced it was developing a partially improvised comedy starring David Schwimmer called Irreversible based on the hit Israeli series Bilti Hafich. While the pilot did not make it to series, today Deadline reports that ABC is now giving the project another shot by recasting Justin Long in the lead role. Described as “partially improvised in the vein of Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Irreversible follows Long’s character Andy “and Sarah, a somewhat eccentric, self-absorbed couple, and their trials and tribulations — most of which they bring upon themselves.” ABC cast British actress Jessica Knappett in the original pilot but are reportedly looking for a replacement to star opposite Long.
