NBC Reveals Title Of Upcoming Comedy Pilot Starring Kal Penn

Actor Kal Penn

NBC has revealed the title of its upcoming comedy pilot, which will have cast of mostly immigrant actors including Kal Penn: Sunnyside.

Kiran Deol, Moses Storm, Diana Maria Riva, Samba Schutte, Poppy Liu, Joel Kim Booster and Tudor Petrut will co-star in the single-camera comedy executive produced by Penn, writer-producer Matt Murray, The Good Place creator/executive producer Michael Schur and Universal TV, according to Deadline.

Sunnyside is named after the neighborhood in the historically diverse Queens borough of New York where the show is set, reports the Sunny Side Post. It centers on former New York City Councilman Garrett Shah (Penn), who finds his calling when faced with seven recent immigrants — five of them played by immigrant actors — in need of his help and in search of the American Dream.
