Michael Urie to Star in NBC Comedy FRIENDS-IN-LAW

Michael Urie is set to star in the NBC comedy Friends-in-Law opposite Zach Cregger, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The pilot from hails from writer Brian Gallivan (Happy Endings, The McCarthys) and Warner Bros. TV. Urie and Cregger play two polar opposites who have to figure out how to co-exist when their respective best friends try to get married.

Vella Lovell (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Gil Ozeri (Big Mouth) will star as the couple caught in the middle.

Urie's Brian fears his best friend Margaret's (Lovell) potential marriage to Randy (Ozeri) will leave him left out. He forms an unlikely partnership with Randy's best friend, Jake (Cregger), to disrupt their union.

Jake, described as handsome and "a little too arrogant," has been best friends with Randy since kindergarten and rejects the unwanted additions of Margaret and Brian in his life. Margaret and Randy, meanwhile, are ready to commit to each other despite what their best friends think.

Friends-in-Law was redeveloped for this pilot season after it was passed over by NBC in 2018 with Devere Rogers and James Davis played Brian and Jake and John Gemberling and Nicole Parker as Randy and Margaret.

Michael Urie recently starred on Broadway in Torch Song. His other theater credits include Buyer & Cellar (Drama Desk, Clarence Derwent, Lucille Lortel, LA Drama Critics Awards), Homos Or Everyone In America (Obie Award), Shows For Days, The Cherry Orchard, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, Angels In America, The Tempermentals (Lortel, Drama Desk, Theatre World Awards).
