TV LAND CASTS STAGE AND SCREEN STARS MEGAN HILTY, JOHN BEHLMANN, GENEVA CARR AND BROOKLYN SHUCK IN TV LAND'S PILOT "I SHUDDER"

Actors To Star Alongside Hamish Linklater

New York, NY - August 19, 2015 - TV Land has tapped into the theater world for its pilot "I Shudder," casting "Smash" bombshell and Broadway alum Megan Hilty ("9 to 5: The Musical," "Wicked"), John Behlmann ("Significant Other," "The 39 Steps"), Tony(R)-nominated Geneva Carr ("Hand To God") and Brooklyn Shuck ("Matilda The Musical," "Annie") to co-star opposite previously announced lead actor Hamish Linklater ("Cymbeline," "The Newsroom"). Hilty and Behlmann will play Sara and Drake Morelle, the demanding parents to 11-year-old Stella, played by Shuck. The Morelles are neighbors to the eccentric and refined Elyot Vionnet, played by Linklater. Carr has been tapped to play their other neighbor, Susan Marie, who is unpleasant and self-righteous. The pilot will be shot in New York in October.

"I Shudder" is a comedy revolving around Elyot Vionnet, an advocate of manners, style and most importantly, common decency. Observing people committing heinous crimes of etiquette, he tries to counsel them from afar, inserting himself into their lives most unwelcomely. When the individuals he deems classless choose not to take his advice, they are met with terrible consequences. Elyot joins forces with his young neighbor Stella to try to make the world better, one tactless person at a time.

"I Shudder" is written and executive produced by Paul Rudnick ("In & Out," "Addams Family Values"), who also wrote the book on which the project is based, I Shudder: And Other Reactions to Life, Death, and New Jersey. Also executive producing is Dan Jinks ("American Beauty," "Pushing Daisies"). Tesley + Company handled casting for the pilot.
