Great news! Utkarsh Ambudkar has been cast as the male lead opposite Rose McIver in ‘Ghosts‘, CBS’ single-camera comedy pilot.
Source | Written by Port and Wiseman based on the British series, Ghosts follows a young couple, Samantha (McIver) and Ryan (Ambudkar), whose dreams come true when they inherit a beautiful country house, only to find it’s both falling apart and inhabited by many of the deceased previous residents.
Ambudkar’s Ryan, Sam’s husband, is a thoroughly modern dude with a love of nerdom and a talented chef. In addition to McIver, he joins previously cast Rebecca Wisocky and Brandon Scott Jones.
Finding a male lead for Ghosts has been a priority for CBS over the last couple of months. As everyone has been at home and social distancing, the network employed Zoom chemistry reads with McIver among other tools.
