Sarah Baker (Go On) and Georgia King (The New Normal) are exiting CBS’ The Odd Couple reboot, which the network picked up to series just last week.
A reboot of the series of the same name, The Odd Couple follows roommates Oscar Madison and Felix Unger. The half-hour comedy is produced by CBS Television Studios and stars Matthew Perry, Thomas Lennon, Sarah Wendell Pierce and Lindsay Sloane. The EPs are Matthew Perry, Joe Keenan, Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman & Eric and Kim Tannenbaum,
Sarah Baker played the part of Sam, Oscar’s (Matthew Perry) assistant; while Georgia King played Katie, a model who lives in Oscar and Felix’s building. Baker’s role was created specifically for her by former Go On co-star Matthew Perry.
The news of the departures comes ahead of CBS announcing their Fall schedule in New York City tomorrow, where the network is expected to announced a mid-season launch for The Odd Couple. Both roles are expected to be recast.
