*Actor-comedian Ron Funches (Disney XD’s Crash & Bernstein) has been added to the NBC/WBTV comedy pilot “Undateable,” while Milauna Jackson (Blood Done Sign My Name) joins the cast of Cinemax‘s action drama “Strike Back,” as it starts production on a 10-episode Season 3.
“Undateable” follows a group of date-challenged friends whose lives are forever altered when a more confident character (Chris D’Elia) enters their world. Funches, also a writer on Comedy Central’s “The Kroll Show,” plays Shelly, an odd, shy musician member of the group whose appeal to women comes to life when he’s performing.
In “Strike Back’s” third season, counterterrorism unit Section 20 pursues a deadly terrorist network from Colombia to Beirut to Europe, uncovering deadly plots that reach to the West.
Jackson will play a key player who crosses paths with the counterterrorism team.
