Seinfeld alum Jason Alexander’s next show, Hit The Road, has rounded out its cast. Alexander co-created the 10-episode half-hour comedy series for AT&T Audience Network alongside Peter Tilden and Dean Craig.
Joining him in the show are The Office‘s Amy Pietz, Live Like Line‘s Natalie Sharp, Summer of 8‘s Nick Marini, Fist Fight‘s Tim Johnson Jr. and Hell on Wheels‘ Maddie Dixon-Poirer. Here’s a first look photo of the cast as production gets underway in Vancouver…
Hit The Road is about the greatest family band you’ve never heard of – yet! This chaotically dysfunctional family of would-be rock/pop stars traverse the country in a cramped tour bus sacrificing privacy, comfort and dignity while in search of fame and fortune. Struggling to navigate their lives and relationships while juggling what’s best for the family versus what’s best for the band, they invariably end up making very unfortunate decisions. Yet nothing will stop them from claiming their rightful place in pop history.
Alexander stars as family patriarch Ken Swallow. Pietz is Maggie, the bohemian, unorthodox mom. Sharp plays Ria, the supremely talented diva who has her sights set on stardom. Marini portrays Sam, the impulsive and endearing son who aims to please. Johnson is Jermaine, the smart, slightly neurotic adopted son who seeks stability more than anything else. Dixon-Poirier plays Casey, the youngest sibling and the moral compass of the family.
