Kathy Najimy, Paul Iacono Join Mike Roma Indie ‘Dating My Mother’

Comedy about a single mother and her gay son starts shooting in late August

Kathy Najimy has joined the cast of Mike Roma’s “Dating My Mother,” TheWrap has learned.

The “Veep” star joins the indie comedy alongside Kathryn Erbe (“Law & Order: Criminal Intent”), James Le Gros (“Girls”) and Paul Iacono (MTV’s “The Hard Times of RJ Berger”).

Roma serves as writer-director on the project, which is about the close bond between a single mother (Erbe) and her gay son, played by newcomer Patrick Reilly. The duo “navigate the world of online dating as they search for their versions of ‘Mr. Right,” according to a synopsis.

Najimy will play a neighbor, with Iacono playing a potential love interest for Reilly. Production begins late August in New Jersey.

Najimy is represented by Abrams Artists Agency and Iacono is repped by Michael Einfeld Management. Erbe is at by Innovative Artists. Patrick Reilly is with 44 West Entertainment.
