Former House of Pies star Benny Schwaz has been cast in a Showtime pilot called The Wrong Mans, based on the BBC series created by James Corden and Mathew Baynton. The Showtime version will be written by Corden, Baynton and Ian Maxtone-Graham.
The show, a collaboration with Bad Robot, is an action comedy about two office workers whose lives are turned upside by a case of mistaken identity. Corden and Baynton starred in the original BBC show, but the person starring with Schwartz has not yet been announced.
I am starring in/producing a pilot based on one of my favorite UK shows of all time- The Wrong Mans. And the kicker is, I get to do it with a bunch of people who I've looked up to forever- JJ Abrams @JKCorden @realmatbaynton @jimfieldsmith @ianhmg @bad_robot @Showtime.
