After sending fans into a panic, NBC has finally settled on a premiere date for season 2 of Whitney. With the recent cancellation of ‘Animal Practice’, the network has plans to debut the Whitney Cummings (Chelsea Lately) comedy vehicle on November 14th at 8pm.
‘Whitney’ focuses in a young newly wed couple played by Cummings and her husband Alex, portrayed by actor Chris D’Elia (Bad Girls from Valley High). Together the two tackle marital issues and family drama in modern day while dealing with their quirky circle of entertaining friends played by actors Zoe Lister-Jones (The Other Guys), Rhea Seehorn (The Starter Wife), Dan O’Brien (How I Met Your Mother), and new comer Tone Bell (I Am the Bluebird).
The show is produced through both Universal Television and Bluegrass Television. Scott Stuber (The Breakup) is executive producer of ‘Whitney’ along with the help of Quan Phung, Wil Calhoun (Friends), Barry Katz (Last Comic Standing) and Whitney Cummings. Andy Ackerman (Seinfeld) also serves as a producer, writer and director of the break-out comedy series.
