Deadline is reporting that Eddie Izzard (The Riches) and The Tick alum Valorie Curry have joined NBC drama pilot Langdon.
Izzard will play influential Director of the Smithsonian Peter, while Curry is set as Katherine, a scientist who studies how consciousness can affect the physical world.
Yesterday it was reported that NBC will commit to filming five pilots for this upcoming season once production can safely begin, with Langdon among them. The series joins multi-cam Night School, based on the Tiffany Haddish movie of the same name; Grand Crew, a single cam executive produced by Dan Goor (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) that centers on a group of black friends, their dating lives, and wine; workplace comedy American Auto, from Superstore creator Justin Spitzer; and Ordinary Joe, an ambitious drama that follows the three parallel lives that splinter off when its main character (James Wolk) makes a pivotal decision at a major turning point in his life.
The network already has sinkhole mystery La Brea with a large script order and sci-fi drama Debris with an essentially completed pilot from which to judge. Dramas At That Age and Echo and comedies Crazy For You, Jefferies and Someone Out There have all been rolled into next development season.
