Gabriel Iglesias is joining the cast of a new NBC sitcom pilot.
The show, Hungry, follows a “group of friends who belong to a food-issues group helping one another as they look for love, success and the perfect thing in the fridge that’s going to make it all better.”
Iglesias is joining a cast that features Valerie Bertinelli, Alex Brightman and Ashley D. Kelley, based on a script by Susan Martin. Veteran TV director James Burrows will direct the pilot. (Burrows is essentially a proven good luck charm when it comes to directing sitcom pilots).
With the premise and the talent involved, it sounds like the show definitely has potential. We’re looking forward to see what they do with it!
