TBS's Ground Floor is a brand new workplace comedy with a romantic twist. Set in the modern world of corporate America, the show centers on Brody (Skylar Astin - Pitch Perfect), a young, hot-shot banker at Remington Trust who thought he was just having a one-night stand with Jennifer (Briga Heelan - Cougar Town), a beautiful woman he met at a bar. But when he discovers that she works in maintenance for the building where he works, their worlds begin to collide in the most unexpected ways. Facing Brody's critical boss, Mr. Mansfield (John C.McGinley - Scrubs), as well as annoyed colleagues, the pair must find a way to deal with their growing feelings for each other in this modern take on Romeo & Juliet. Also starring in the series are Rory Scovel (Zach Stone is Going to be Famous), James Earl (Glee), Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect) and Rene Gube (Upright Citizens Brigade).
Ground Floor was created by Emmy(R)-nominated producers Bill Lawrence (Cougar Town, Scrubs, Clone High) and Greg Malins (2 Broke Girls, How I Met Your Mother). The series is produced by Bill Lawrence's Doozer, in association with Warner Horizon Television. Lawrence, Jeff Ingold (Undateable) and Jeff Astrof (The New Adventures of Old Christine) serve as executive producers.
