Tony Winner Harriet Harris Joins Christian Borle in NBC Comedy Pilot LIFESAVER

Deadline writes that Tony winner Harriet Harris has signed on for NBC's LIFESAVER comedy pilot from writer Will Calhoun, opposite fellow Broadway alum Christian Borle.

Read the original report here.

LIFESAVER "centers on two polar opposites, the uptight, controlling and a bit neurotic Dr. Graham Permenter (Borle) and loose cannon Leon (Jonathan Ryland), who become inextricably linked after Leon saves Graham's life by giving him a kidney".

Harris will play Parmenter's mother, Liz.

The comedy will be produced by Universal TV and Peter Traugott's TBD Entertainment.

Harris has appeared on TV in Desperate Housewives, Frasier, It's All Relative and more, plus the popular, theatre-centric web series Submissions Only.

She last appeared in Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella on Broadway. Her past stage credits include Present Laughter, Cry-Baby, Old Acquaintance, Thoroughly Modern Millie - for which she won a 2002 Tony Award - The Man Who Came to Dinner and Four Baboons Adoring the Sun.
