Just like many of you, I was dismayed at the cancellation of ABC's Miss Guided starring Judy Greer. I love watching her and I thought overall it was a fantastic ensemble comedy. From my poll results, it also looks like some folks are none too pleased to see Notes From the Underbelly go, too, but as sad as these cancellations are, take heart: Judy Greer and Rachael Harris (from Notes) have already scored new gigs — and on HBO, no less!
The two will star in HBO's half-hour pilot Suburban Shootout. Hollywood Reporter has more:
Based on the critically praised British series, Shootout is a dark comedy about a woman (Greer) who escapes the city for suburban bliss only to find herself caught between two rival gangs of homicidal housewives as they vie for control of their idyllic town.
In addition to Greer and Harris, so far the cast is rounded out by Kelly Preston and Reno! 911's Kerri Kenney (Deputy Trudy Wiegel!). Man, HBO is on such a roll with the female-led programming this year. I can't wait to see what they have in store for us.
