LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Amanda Peet is reuniting with her "Whole Nine Yards" co-star Matthew Perry, this time on the small screen.
Peet will join Perry in "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," an NBC project set behind the scenes of a fictional broadcasting network’s flagship late-night sketch comedy show.
She will play Jordan McDeere, the newly appointed president of the network. Perry plays a genius comic writer.
Steven Weber and D.L. Hughley were previously cast as the network chairman and one of the "Studio 60" stars, respectively.
Evan Handler ("Sex and the City"), Michael Stuhlbarg ("The Pillowman"), Nathan Corddry ("The Daily Show") and Carlos Jacott ("Fun With Dick & Jane") also have joined the ensemble cast. Handler and Jacott play senior writers, and Stuhlbarg plays the network’s by-the-book censor. Corddry also plays one of the "Studio 60" stars.
Peet, most recently seen in the film "Syriana" and the Neil LaBute off-Broadway play "This Is How It Goes" with Ben Stiller and Jeffrey Wright, is making her Broadway debut in "Barefoot in the Park" opposite Patrick Wilson, which is slated to premiere February 16.
On the big screen, she will be seen opposite Zach Braff and Jason Bateman in the comedy "Fast Track," with John Cusack in "The Martian Child" and in the romantic drama "Griffin and Phoenix" with Dermot Mulroney.
