HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2015/3/17 – “One of the things that we really wanted to do was add another female regular to the show so we added Bridgit Mendler,” says Undateable executive producer Bill Lawrence. “It’s been a very weird experience because we cast her because she was great, and my children are suddenly incredibly interested in the show because, apparently, Bridgit is a singing star and was on another show, and my kids are much more impressed by her.”
“I could not be more excited that NBC is doing multicams,” says Lawrence. “I love them. I started on the first show I created with my mentor, Gary Goldberg, and Spin City was a multicam, and that audience experience specifically with actors and actresses this talented and comedians that can vibe off the audience, if anybody’s been to a taping of our show, they say what’s written once, and then they kind of do their own thing.”
“I see a lot of social media stuff from them,” says Undateable star Bridgit Mendler. “I’m hoping that they enjoy it. I mean, obviously, it’s a different kind of comedy. So I’m thinking that it will more be something that the older fans will gravitate towards, but I think it’s genuinely funny. So I’m assuming that my fans will as well.”

Undatable premiered the summer of 2014. The show was originally about four guys and their lack of a love life. This season adds Mendler, makes it less male centric.
