The half-hour comedy “Perfect Couples” joins the list with “Chase,” “Undercovers,” “The Event,” “Love Bites,” and “Outsourced” as one of NBC’s new shows for the 2010-2011 season.
The series chronicles the misadventures of three couples as
they struggle to find out what makes the ideal relationship. Olivia Munn, who stars in the ensemble, reveals details of the show to Zap2it.
“[Vance and Amy] are the
fights-and-has-sex-a-lot couple, [Dave and Julia] are the normal couple
and then there’s my couple, which seems like they’re perfect but is
actually everything that’s wrong with America,” Munn explains. “They
spend way too much money and don’t have anything to back it up.”
Munn portrays Leigh, who is coupled with Rex (Hayes MacArthur, “She’s Out of My League”). And rounding out the cast is the aforementioned Dave (Kyle Howard, “My Boys”), Julia (Christine Woods, “Flash Forward”), Vance (Dave Walton, NBC’s “100 Questions”) and Amy (Mary Elizabeth Ellis, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”).
Munn couldn’t been more thrilled about the project, also telling us: “Doing this pilot was literally the best time of my life.”
Jon Pollack (“30 Rock”) and Scott Silveri (“Friends”) are the executive
producers while Andy Ackerman (“Seinfeld,” “The New Adventures of Old
Christine”) is the director.
