'SUPERSTORE' NBC SITCOM
 BEN FELDMAN SCORES THE LEAD
Still not much of the news from the movieworld, so we're sticking to TV today as well, beginning with NBC's comedy series pilot SUPERSTORE which has just cast charming Ben Feldman, from the recently deceased A TO Z sitcom, in the lead role! The new sitcom will be set in a large retail establishment following its employees. Ben Feldman will be Jonah, a college graduate who wants a taste of the real world and whose charisma, zest for life and eternal optimism is contagious and endears him to his fellow staffers. 'Shameless' star Nichole Bloom will play the pregnant Cheyenne, while Colton Dunn is the sarcastic narrator Garrett, who uses the store's intercom to share his thoughts.

  9. I've been fascinated for years with the Bloomsbury group so I'm really looking forward to "Life in Squares." I hope PBS picks up the series for broadcast in North America.
