Nathan Lane recently shot a pilot episode for a potential thirty minute sitcom on the USA network in Martin’s Landing,a residential neighborhood in Roswell. Lane will star as the title character, Jasper, a stage actor who must put his career on hold in order to return to Texas and care for his father. Ken Jenkins (Scrubs) will play Jasper’s ornery father who prefers to drink rather than address his failing health. The most important part of this story is that if the pilot gets the green light, Cheyenne Jackson (30 Rock) who plays a hunky doctor who befriends Jasper, will be filming in Roswell! Andrea Martin (The Producers) will play Peggy, Jasper’s casting agent. Douglas McGrath (academy award nominee for Bullets over Broadway) will write and direct the series which is using the working title On We Go.
