Hannah Simone Will Be Joining ABC’s New Comedy “Not Dead Yet”

According to Deadline, New Girl alumna Hannah Simone will be in ABC’s new comedy series Not Dead Yet, from Casey Johnson and David Windsor, McG, and 20th Television.

What's Happening:

  • It has been announced that Hannah Simone will be playing Sam in ABC’s new comedy series Not Dead Yet.
  • This project is based on Alexandra Potter’s 2020 book, Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k Up.
  • Sam is a colleague of Rodriguez’s Nell and is part of the single-camera comedy. This is now leaning more into the workplace, with the female friendship storyline from the pilot phased out.
  • Because of this, Jessica St. Clair and Mary Elizabeth Ellis, who played Nell’s girlfriends Annabel and Fiona in the pilot, are not continuing with the series.
  • Other members of the cast in addition to Rodriguez include Joshua Banday and Angela Gibbs. Pilot series regular, Rick Glassman, who plays Nell’s roommate, will be recurring.
