In a bit of TV news that may have gotten lost in the shuffle last month . . . actress Tymberlee Hill has been cast in the NBC comedy pilot Lady Friends; and ABC Family has given the greenlight to the comedy pilot Baby Daddy, which co-stars Tahj Mowry.
Lady Friends is a comedy that centers on two life-long female friends, Nicole and Jen, who are living very different lives but can’t live without each other. Hill, who was seen last year in roles on Curb Your Enthusiasm and Castle, will play Nicole’s friend, a mother of three.
Baby Daddy will air this summer, and is a series about a guy named Ben, who suddenly becomes a father to a baby girl when she is left at his doorstep by an ex-girlfriend. Ben decides to raise the baby with the help of his mother Bonnie, his brother Danny, and his friends Tucker (Mowry) and Riley, who has a secret crush on him.
