In his US series debut, young Australian actor Tom Green has been cast as a lead in the NBC 10-episode summer series Camp, from creators Liz Heldens and Peter Elkoff, BermanBraun and Universal TV. In the tradition of Meatballs and Dazed And Confused, Little Hawk Family Camp is a wicked slice of lake-side heaven. In the one-hour dramedy, parents decompress with gin while teenagers make gleeful mischief and fall in and out of love. Green, repped by WME, Luber Roklin & Australia’s RGM, plays young male lead Kip, an adorable loner who likes indie rock and documentary films and hates people. In Australia, Green starred on drama series Dance Academy, which was carried in the US by TeenNick.
Anjelah N. Johnson has been cast in About A Boy, NBC‘s single-camera pilot based on the Nick Hornby book and the 2002 movie. Written by Jason Katims, and directed by Revolution’s Jon Favreau, About A Boy follows the relationship between Will (David Walton), a bachelor man-child who is going through a revolving door of women, and the young boy who moves in next door with his kooky single mother, Fiona (Minnie Driver). Johnson, repped by Gersh and Generate, will play Laurie, the well-meaning but often overbearing wife of Will’s best friend and mother of 3 who is frustrated by Will’s childishness. She previously co-starred in another NBC comedy pilot, the 2011 My Life Is An Experiment.
