Benanti, Murin Set for Upcoming Pilots

Laura Benanti (Gypsy, Women on the Verge) and Patti Murin (Lysistrata Jones) have both been cast in upcoming pilots for next season.

Benanti will star in GO ON on NBC, where she recently starred in the short lived The Playboy Club. According to Deadline, the series focuses on 'Ryan (Perry), an irreverent yet charming sportscaster who, trying to move on from a loss, finds surprising solace in the members of his mandatory support group.' Benenti will play a tightly-wound support group leader.

Murin will star in an untitled CBS comedy series. According to Deadline, the series is about 'an ensemble of young people trying to achieve their creative dreams in these tough financial times.' Murin will play a clothing designer.

These both have the makings to be good, but with the way TV has been lately, we will have to wait and see.
