About the Show
NBC's new multi-camera comedy "Whitney" is a hilarious look at modern day love, which centers around
Whitney (Whitney Cummings, "Chelsea Lately") and Alex (Chris D'Elia, "Glory Daze"), a happily unmarried
couple. Together for three years, the duo is in no rush to get hitched, which seems to get a mixed
response from their friends.
Whitney's close circle of girlfriends includes on one side: Lily (Zoe Lister-Jones, "The Other Guys"), a
romantic idealist who loves being in love, and on the other: Roxanne (Rhea Seehorn, "The Starter Wife"),
a recent divorcee who is practical, cynical, and dreading being single again. Lily and Roxanne's opposing
points of view only exacerbate Whitney's own complicated outlook on relationships.
Completing their close-knit group is Neal (Maulik Pancholy, NBC's "30 Rock"), a real modern day Renaissance
man - sensitive, cool and knows a little bit about everything and happens to be dating Lily. On the other
end of the spectrum is Whitney and Alex's next-door neighbor Mark (Dan O'Brien, "How I Met Your Mother"),
a police officer and total bachelor, who claims to be the ultimate player, but likes to talk a good game.
At the end of the day, Whitney and Alex try to have a relationship on their own terms - in a world that
expects a more traditional approach.
"Whitney" is produced by Universal Television in association with Stuber Pictures. Stuber
("The Break Up"), Quan Phung, Betsy Thomas ("My Boys") and Barry Katz ("Last Comic Standing")
are executive producers along with Cummings and executive producer/writer Andy Ackerman ("Seinfeld,"
"The New Adventures of Old Christine"), who directed the pilot.
