Hulu’s forthcoming comedy series, Reboot, has nabbed a trio of all-stars.
It was revealed on Monday that Judy Greer, Keegan-Michael Key & Johnny Knoxville have boarded Hulu’s comedy series, Reboot. Greer has nabbed the leading lady role of Bree Marie Larson, replacing Leslie Bibb. Per Deadline, the reason for the recast is because the writers ultimately took the direction of the main female character in a “different direction.”
Reboot hails from Steven Levitan and 20th Television. Along with creating the series, Levitan will write, executive produce and showrun Reboot for Hulu. The series focuses on Hollywood’s love of rebooting properties, especially for the small screen. Reboot sees a 2000s family sitcom rebooted, forcing its dysfunctional cast back together. Over the course of the series, the cast will need to “deal with their unresolved issues in today’s fast-changing world.”
Key plays the role of Reed Sterling, a fussy actor also on the sitcom. While Knoxville plays Clay Barber, a dark and filthy standup comedian who is most famous for is work on the “sunny” sitcom. As for Greer’s Bree, the character is described as a small-town pageant girl who always dreamed of being an actress and a princess and both somehow came true. The trio joins the previously cast Rachel Bloom, Calum Worthy and Krista Marie Yu.
