PRODUCTION BEGINS IN LOS ANGELES ON NEW COMEDY SERIES "CAVEMEN," PREMIERING OCTOBER 2 ON ABC

Production has begun in Los Angeles on "Cavemen," a new comedy that focuses on three cavemen who have successfully made the move to San Diego and are just trying to fit in. The series premieres TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2 (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

They have been around since the dawn of time, survived the Ice Age and witnessed the evolution of the Homo sapiens, making them one of the world's oldest minorities. Keeping mostly to themselves over the millennia and living in remote communities, a small number of cavemen � and cavewomen � have been slowly migrating from these sub-societies and attempting to acclimate themselves to the Homo sapien world. Needless to say, this has proven difficult.

Joel (Bill English) is a sophisticated and intelligent man who has a beautiful girlfriend, a decent job and shares an apartment with his younger brother, Andy (Sam Huntington, "Superman Returns"), and his best friend, Nick (Nick Kroll, VH1's "Best Week Ever"). Nick is wary of the Homo sapien world and feels like he's running away from his heritage. Andy, on the other hand, looks at this new world with his eyes wide open and is willing to take risks in order to learn and to live life to the fullest.

Nick questions Joel on many of his choices, including his girlfriend, Kate (Kaitlin Doubleday, "The TV Set"), a beautiful Homo sapien woman. The fact that Kate's eccentric mother, Leslie (Julie White, Tony Award winner for "The Little Dog Laughed"), owns Joel's condominium complex makes things even more complicated for the three roommates. Meanwhile, Kate's best friend, Thorne (Stephanie Lemelin), is intent on discovering the cavemen's wilder side.

Joel, Nick and Andy have to overcome prejudice from most of the Homo sapien world and the misconceptions that modern society has of its earliest ancestors. In order for these cavemen to survive in the 21st century, they must work together to render those misconceptions extinct.

"Cavemen" stars Bill English as Joel, Nick Kroll as Nick, Sam Huntington as Andy, Kaitlin Doubleday as Kate, Stephanie Lemelin as Thorne and Julie White as Leslie.

The series is based on characters from the GEICO commercials by the Martin Agency. "Cavemen" was developed by Josh Gordon & Will Speck (directors of "Blades of Glory") and Joe Lawson. Bill Martin & Mike Schiff ("Grounded for Life," "3rd Rock from the Sun"), Gordon & Speck, Daniel Rappaport ("Office Space") & Guymon Casady serve as executive producers. "Cavemen" is from ABC Studios.
