The former ‘Suburgatory’ star will be a regular in the Mike Kelley-created anthology.

The forthcoming Netflix series What/If has added a second person to its cast alongside Renee Zellweger.

Jane Levy (Castle Rock) has joined the drama anthology from Mike Kelley. The former Suburgatory star will play a character named Lisa in the show; other details about her role are being kept quiet for now.

The 10-episode What/If is described as a social thriller exploring the ripple effects when acceptable people start doing unacceptable things. As with the character description for Levy, details about the plot are sparse; the first season may revolve around newlyweds.

The show is planned as an anthology, with each season taking on a new morality tale and examining the idea that a single decision can have lifelong consequences.

Kelley (Revenge, Swingtown) created the series and will serve as showrunner. He executive produces with Melissa Loy, Alex Gartner, Charles Roven, Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke.

What/If marks Oscar winner Zellweger’s first regular role on a series.

Levy currently plays Jackie on another anthology series, Hulu’s Castle Rock. In addition to Suburgatory, which ran for three seasons on ABC, her credits include Don’t Breathe, the 2013 Evil Dead, Shameless and streaming series There’s … Johnny!

Levy is repped by Gersh and Sloane Offer.

“Sea Oak,” ‘The Climb” and “Love You More” — Amazon’s three comedy pilots from this season — will not be moving forward to series, Variety has confirmed.

The move reflects the new programming strategy mandated by Jeff Bezos, away from niche offerings and toward tentpole projects like the new iteration of “Lord of the Rings.” Amazon is said to be searching for big hit series that can run for multiple seasons.

Another factor at play is the shift in leadership at Amazon Studios. The executives who greenlit the projects, which bowed on November 10, have all exited — from content head Roy Price to comedy and drama chief Joe Lewis. COO Albert Chang has been serving as interim head while the search continues for a replacement for Price. […]

And the black comedy “Sea Oak” starred Close as a Rust Belt woman who comes back from the dead after she’s killed in a home invasion. “Atlanta’s” Hiro Murai directed the pilot and exec produces with creator George Saunders, Jonathan Krauss and Evan Dunsky. […]

30 Rock has found a new streaming home.

The Tina Fey comedy and acclaimed family drama Parenthood are two of the shows headed to Hulu as part of a massive SVOD deal between NBCUniversal and the streaming company, it was announced Wednesday.

As part of the pact, Hulu also will also premiere the new Paul Reiser period comedy There’s Johnny, set against the backdrop of the Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, that was originally set to debut on NBC’s soon-to-be-defunct streaming app Seeso. Other shows included in the agreement are Syfy’s reality competition series Face Off and the UK series Made in Chelsea.

[…]

NBC famously tried to its own streaming platform, the comedy-heavy Seeso, in 2016. The niche brand offered originals like The UCB Show, Take My Wife and Bajillion Dollar Properties, as well as episodes of classic NBC comedies like Parks and Recreation and Saturday Night Live. However, it was confirmed on Aug. 9 that the streaming service would be shut down by the end of 2017.

News of Seeso’s impending demise came just weeks before the originally scheduled Aug. 24 launch of There’s Johnny, which hails from exec producer Paul Reiser and stars Tony Danza. Subsequently, the premiere was delayed as producers had been trying to find a new home for the period comedy.
