Carmen Cusack Joins the Cast of NBC's Musical Dramedy ZOEY'S EXTRAORDINARY PLAYLIST

Carmen Cusack is headed back to the small screen in NBC's upcoming musical dramedy, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist!

According to Deadline, Cusack will play Joan, a female tech pioneer who runs a tight ship at Zoey's office.

Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist follows a whip-smart but socially awkward girl in her late 20's, Zoey, played by Jane Levy, who is suddenly able to hear the innermost thoughts of people around her as songs and even big musical numbers that they perform just for her. With this new ability at her disposal, she is able to use her "gift" to not only help herself understand people in her life, but also to help others around her.

Richard Shepard will direct the pilot, replacing Paul Feig, who originally intended to direct. Feig will continue to serve as an executive producer.

As BroadwayWorld previously announced, the cast will also include Alex Newell and Skylar Astin. Astin will play Max. Zoey's co-worker and best friend who is funny and has an indie vibe. Newell is Mo, Zoey's neighbor who is easygoing, open-minded and cool.

After her time on the West End as Fantine in Les Misérables, Cusack toured as the leading lady of both Wicked and South Pacific. She made her Broadway debut as Alice Murphy in Bright Star, a role in which she went on to reprise on tour. Off-Broadway, she was in Carrie in 2012. She most recently appeared in Encores! Call Me Madam.
