Ground Floor series premiere “Pilot” airs Thursday, November 14th at 10PM ET/PT on TBS.
Episode Synopsis: Ground Floor Episode 1 “Pilot”- When a driven young “top floor” Brody falls for the down-to-earth “ground floor” Jenny, it brings together two very different groups of friends – and raises the ire of one very disapproving boss.
Show Synopsis: Set in the modern world of corporate America, Ground Floor centers on Brody (Astin), a young hot-shot banker who thought he was just having a one-night stand with Jennifer (Heelan), a beautiful woman he met at an office party. He discovers, however, that she works in the maintenance department for the building where his bank– Remington Trust – is located. Suddenly their worlds begin to collide in the most unexpected ways. Facing Brody’s critical boss, Mr. Mansfield (McGinley), as well as annoyed colleagues, the pair must find a way to deal with their growing feelings for each other in this modern take on Romeo & Juliet.
Starring as Jennifer’s co-workers in the building’s maintenance office are Rory Scovel (Zach Stone is Going to be Famous) as Harvard, a know-it-all who’s secretly enamored with her; James Earl (Glee) as Derrick, a guy who is tough on the outside, but a pussy cat on the inside and always looks out for his friends; and Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect) as Tori, a sexy young woman who loves to hit the clubs every night and catch up on her sleep at work. In addition, Rene Gube (Upright Citizens Brigade) stars as Brody’s colleague Threepeat, a competitive go-getter who’s not quite as shallow as he seems.
