Wendt, Tisdale set for barbershop comedy

Wendt, Tisdale set for barbershop comedy

George Wendt (“Cheers”) and Ashley Tisdale (“High School Musical”) have joined David Kohan and Max Mutchnick‘s multi-camera untitled barbershop comedy pilot at TBS, says Deadline.

Lauren Lapkus (“Orange is the New Black”) is also onboard the comedy, which ”revolves around a group of kids who ran in different circles in high school but now all work together at Buzzy’s Barbershop in Charlestown, MA. Their dreams may lie across the Charles River in Boston, but for now, their work, their lives, their loves and their worries remain in the town they grew up in.”

Wendt is ”Buzzy, the barbershop’s former owner, a nice guy who’s always up for a conversation. But he has one tragic flaw: He’s an inveterate gambler. Tisdale, repped by UTA and Perlman Management, will play Danni, a barber at Buzzy’s who is one of the guys — but she’s still totally sexy without really trying. Lapkus, repped by CAA and Odenkirk Provissero, plays Joy, the barbershop receptionist who’s an eternal optimist.”
