Matthew Broderick Moves Into Beach Lane


Matthew Broderick is attached to star in NBC’s upcoming comedy pilot “Beach Lane,” which was given the green light Monday, says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Beach Lane,” from UMS, Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video and writer Paul Simms (“NewsRadio”), stars Broderick as a celebrity author hired by an irresponsible millionaire heir to run his struggling small-town newspaper in the Hamptons.

Broderick was approached to do the project months ago but would only commit after reading the final script.
