Star World to launch new series 'Ed'

MUMBAI: Star World is starting a new series Ed from Wednesday 18 August in the 8 pm slot.

From the writer/producer of the Late Show with David Letterman comes this one-hour romantic comedy that centres around Ed Stevens (Tom Cavanagh) and his group of friends in the quaint yet quirky midwestern town of Stuckeyville.

The local bowling alley, Stuckeybowl, is owned by Ed and serves as his impromptu law office. After his return from New York and his failed marriage, Stuckeyville and his unique work environment allow Ed to see his hometown and its eccentric citizens with fresh eyes.He befriends the popular, beautiful woman he never had the courage to date during high school (Julie Bowen) who, along with her best friend Molly (Lesley Boone), teaches at the local high school.

Ed also spends quality time with his best friend Mike (Josh Randall), a doctor whose multi-tasking wife (Jana Marie Hupp) is valiantly trying to balance being a wife, mother - and high school counselor. Ed also helps out Warren (Justin Long), a socially inept but likable high school student who often reminds Ed of a younger version of himself.

In addition, Stuckeybowl is stocked with an odd but appealing group of staff workers including the ever-scamming Phil (Michael Ian Black) the bowling alley manager, and the awkward Shirley (Rachel Cronin) who assists Ed and tends the food and beverage counter.

The series has been honoured with a People's Choice Award for Favorite New Comedy Series and, in the first season, Cavanagh won the TV Guide Award as Actor of the Year in a New Series. Ed has also received three Emmy Award nominations.
