García Swisher Headlining CBS Comedy Pilot

Joanna García Swisher may be returning to network television in the near future.

The 32-year-old half-Cuban/half-Spanish American actress has been chosen as the female lead in a yet-to-be-titled CBS comedy pilot from Greg Malins and Greg Berlanti.


The multi-camera project, coming from Warner Bros. TV and studio-based Berlanti Prods., centers on Nick who has a health scare and realizes that Wendy (García Swisher), his best friend and business partner of 15 years, is “the one.” The show will follow him as he tries to figure out how to break it to her.

This marks the third consecutive Warner Bros. TV pilot for García Swisher after her work on Privileged and Better With You, both of which went to series.

In addition, García Swisher had a story arc on the studio’s CW drama Gossip Girl and will be guest-starring on ABC’s hit series Once Upon a Time.

This new project marks the latest multi-camera comedy for García Swisher who started off on the WB’s Reba.
