Briga Heelan and Skylar Astin star in "Ground Floor."
Bill Lawrence's "Cougar Town" will return with new episodes in 2014, and it will be joined by his new comedy, "Ground Floor," co-created with "2 Broke Girls" writer Greg Malins.
The series, which is expected to premiere its 10-episode first season in 2014, will reunite Lawrence with his former "Scrubs" star John C. McGinley, "Cougar Town" actress Briga Heelan and Skylar Astin as a hotshot banker whose one-night stand gets more complicated when he discovers the girl also handles the maintenance of the building where he works. McGinley plays Astin's critical boss. The series has been described as a workplace "Romeo & Juliet."
Other cast members include Rory Scovel, James Earl, Alexis Knapp and Rene Gube.
This is Lawrence's first original series for TBS, which became the home of his series "Cougar Town" when he moved the show there from ABC after its third season.
