REGINA HALL, CASEY WILSON AND PAUL SCHEER JOIN NEW SHOWTIME(R) COMEDY PILOT "BALL STREET" STARRING GOLDEN GLOBE(R) WINNER DON CHEADLE AND TONY(R) NOMINEE ANDREW RANNELLS

Kurt Braunohler And Eugene Cordero Also Added To Cast

LOS ANGELES - February 12, 2018 - Regina Hall (Girls Trip) and Paul Scheer (The Disaster Artist, The League) are set to join the cast of the SHOWTIME half-hour comedy pilot BALL STREET. Starring Emmy(R) nominated and Golden Globe-winning actor Don Cheadle (Avengers: Infinity War) and two-time Tony Award nominee and Grammy(R) winner Andrew Rannells (Girls, The Intern), BALL STREET is directed and executive produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The pilot, which has also added Kurt Braunohler (The Big Sick) and Eugene Cordero (Kong: Skull Island), is created by David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jordan Cahan (My Best Friend's Girl), who also serve as executive producers and showrunners. Casey Wilson (Happy Endings) will guest star as Tiff, Blair's (Rannells) girlfriend who appreciates the finer things in life that Blair's new job may not provide. Reuniting with Happy Endings and Marry Me producers Caspe and Cahan, Wilson will recur if the show goes to series. Production is scheduled to begin in Los Angeles this week. The pilot is a co-production of SHOWTIME and Sony Pictures Television Studios.

BALL STREET takes us back to October 19, 1987 - aka Black Monday - one of the worst stock market crashes in the history of Wall Street. To this day, no one knows who or what caused it. BALL STREET is the story of how a bunch of fearless underdogs took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street. Among the intrepid traders who make up the group led by Cheadle's character are Dawn (Hall), the no-nonsense head of trading and the only woman on the team, along with Keith (Scheer) and Ronnie (Cordero). Braunohler appears as Ty Daverman, a vice president at Morgan Stanley.

In addition to the blockbuster film Girls Trip, Hall's credits include The Best Man and Think Like a Man. Scheer starred in Human Giant (which he co-created) and has recurred on Veep, Fresh Off the Boat, Wet Hot American Summer and Children's Hospital, among others. In addition to his stand-up work, Braunohler's credits include Bunk, Lady Dynamite, Deadbeat and Horrible People. Cordero has recurred on HOUSE OF LIES with Cheadle, along with Grace & Frankie, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and The Good Place. Wilson's television credits include Happy Endings, Marry Me, The Hotwives and One Mississippi, with film roles including Gone Girl and Julie & Julia.
