Bravo has filled out cast assignments for its new 10-episode comedy series, Odd Mom Out.
Delving into the wealthy lives of fierce mothers around New York’s Upper East Side, the show is tied closely to Jill Kargman’s real life.
Created by Kargman, the half-hour show will also star Abby Elliot, Andy Buckley, Sean Kleier, KK Glick and Joanna Cassidy, in Bravo’s second original scripted series. The show centers on Kargman feeling left out in a city that has become so exclusive, stylish and current. Production starts later this month, with shooting around NYC.
Andy Buckley, most popular for The Office, will play Jill’s affluent husband, while Abby Elliot of Saturday Night Live is the sister-in-law and one of the Upper East Side’s hip mom’s. Seam Kleier will portray her successful brother-in-law and KK Glick plays an ER doctor and her best friend. Joanna Cassidy of Six Feet Under is cast as the uppity mother-in-law.
