TBS Comedy Ground Floor Renewed for Season 2

John C. McGinley and Skylar Astin in TBS comedy Ground Floor

Great news!  TBS have renewed comedy Ground Floor for a second season!

I throoughly enjoyed the first season, Briga Heelan as Jenny and Skylar Astin as Brody are not only believable, but also lovable and with John C. McGinley thrown in, Ground Floor made for a really pleasant and funny comedy.

I must say, my personal favourite from the first season was Rory Scovel as Harvard.  Completely creepy, awkward and unlucky in love, Scovel stole pretty much most scene he was in, and I do hope his infatuation with Jenny is evolved even more in season two (if it’s possible!)

Created by Emmy® nominees Bill Lawrence (Cougar TownScrubs)  and Greg Malins (2 Broke GirlsHow I Met Your Mother), and starring Skylar Astin, Briga Heelan and John C. McGinley, Ground Floor enjoyed a rather moderately successful first season ranking among basic cable’s Top 10 original sitcoms of 2013 with adults 18-49 with ratings hovering around the 1.8 million viewers mark.

From the TBS press release “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”

Familiar Faces Pop Up in new Comedy Ground Floor

I looooove Briga Heelan.  Her guest starring role in Cougar Town as party girl Holly (and mother to Grayson’s awesomely named baby Tampa) still remains a favorite and I always hope she continues to pop up in future episodes.  That said, it seems Briga will be setting up in a permanent role in a new comedy from Cougar Town creator Bill Lawrence.

From TVequals.com “TBS is staying in the Bill Lawrence (Cougar Town) business with their new sitcom Ground Floor, an upstairs/downstairs comedy with a twist–it is set in an office building where the upstairs and downstairs workers are separated by 34 floors. This won’t stop Skylar Astin’s ladder-climbing business guy from falling for Briga Heelan’s maintenance woman, hence the trailer’s use of Aerosmith’s “Love in an Elevator.”

While the trailer is little more than a music video featuring the cast, Ground Floor already looks promising: not only does it have Lawrence’s name attached, it will also star Scrubs‘ standout Ted C. McGinley. Check out the trailer below. Are you excited for TBS’s latest comedy?”

Ground Floor is set to premiere November 14th at 10/9c on TBS in America.
