Elizabeth Ho to star in NBC comedy pilot

Untitled comedy from '30 Rock' producer Matt Hubbard will revolve around an interracial couple.

Elizabeth Ho has been cast as one of the leads in an untitled NBC comedy pilot from 30 Rock co-executive producer Matt Hubbard and Parks & Recreation co-creator/ executive producer Mike Schur.

Chris Smith & Elizabeth Ho To Topline NBC's Matt Hubbard Comedy Pilot

Loosely based on Hubbard's life, the single-camera project revolves around Andrew and Josie, a happily married interracial couple whose lives take a turn when they move close to Josie's family in Missouri.

Chris Smith will play Andrew, "a likable nerd" lawyer, while Elizabeth Ho will play Josie, a "hard-charging woman who has never failed at anything."

Since the logline indicates that Josie's family will play a significant role in the show, I'm guessing there will be room for at least a few more Asian American series regulars.

I'm just hoping the comedy isn't all "Oh! My crazy Asian in-laws!" Please.

Ho's previous series credits Melissa & Joey and Rake. You may recognize her from these hilariously hot Beyoncé-themed engagement photos that went viral a couple of years ago.
