HBO Max has added four new cast members to the Anna Kendrick romantic comedy series “Love Life,” from executive producer Paul Feig.
Zoe Chao (“Strangers”), Sasha Compere (“Miracle Workers”) and Peter Vack (“The Bold Type”) will join Kendrick in the series as regulars, with “Halt and Catch Fire” alum Scoot McNairy to recur.
The 10-episode half-hour series is “about the journey from first love to last love, and how the people we’re with along the way make us into who we are when we finally end up with someone forever.”
The series will follow a different protagonist’s quest for love each season, with each half-hour episode telling the story of one of their relationships. Lionsgate Television will produce the show.
Kendrick will lead the first installment as Darby, with Chao playing her best friend Sara, Vack as Sara’s boyfriend Jim and Compere as her outspoken roommate Mallory. McNairy will play the arrogant and successful owner of a museum where Darby gives tours of “historically significant butts.”
Kendrick will star in the series and executive produce alongside creator Sam Boyd, Feig and Jessie Henderson of FeigCo Entertainment. Boyd wrote the pilot and will also direct. Bridget Bedard is also an executive producer, with Dan Magnante of FeigCo serving as co-executive producer.
