"The TV Set" isn't ready yet. Will start shooting August 18, Lucy Davis and Judy Greer are in advanced negotiations to join the film for screenwriter-director Jake Kasdan. Meanwhile, David Duchovny, Sigourney Weaver and Ioan Gruffudd have all signed on to star in the indie satire.
"The TV Set" revolves the story of the making of a television pilot. Duchovny is set to play the pilot's besieged show runner. Weaver, whose father Sylvester "Pat" Weaver, was a top executive at NBC in the 1940s and '50s, will play the head of a network, and Gruffudd will play a BBC exec who joins the network.
