TBS has renewed its new sitcom hit “Ground Floor” for a second season. Created by Emmy nominees Bill Lawrence (“Cougar Town,” “Scrubs,” “Clone High”) and Greg Malins (“2 Broke Girls,” “How I Met Your Mother”), the series stars Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), Briga Heelan (“Cougar Town”) and John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”).
Lawrence, Jeff Ingold (upcoming “Surviving Jack,” “Undateable”) and Jeff Astrof (“The New Adventures of Old Christine”) serve as executive producers on “Ground Floor,” which is being produced for TBS by Lawrence’s Doozer, in association with Warner Horizon Television. TBS has ordered 10 episodes for the second season, which is slated to begin in late 2014.
Set in the modern world of corporate America, “Ground Floor” centers on Brody (Astin), a young, hot-shot investment banker who thought he was just having a one-night stand with Jennifer (Heelan), a beautiful woman he met at an office party. He discovers, however, that she works in the maintenance department for the building where his investment bank- Remington Trust – is located. Suddenly their worlds begin to collide in the most unexpected ways. Facing Brody’s critical boss, Mr. Mansfield (McGinley), as well as annoyed colleagues, the pair must find a way to deal with their growing feelings for each other in this modern take on Romeo & Juliet.
Starring as Jennifer’s co-workers in the building’s maintenance office are Rory Scovel as Harvard, a know-it-all who’s enamored with her; James Earl as Derrick, a guy who is tough on the outside, but a pussy cat on the inside and always looks out for his friends; and Alexis Knapp as Tori, a sexy young woman who loves to hit the clubs every night and catch up on her sleep at work. In addition, Rene Gube stars as Brody’s colleague Threepeat, a competitive go-getter who’s not quite as shallow as he seems.
