*Khary Payton (“Young Justice”) and Janina Gavankar (“True Blood”) will join Ben Rappaport in USA‘s single-camera comedy pilot, “Love Is Dead,” reports Deadline.com.
Based on a French short film, the story is set at an agency that specializes in breaking up romantic relationships on behalf of those who are willing to pay to not be around when it happens. It centers on Alex (Rappaport) who, after he’s dumped by a representative of the agency, vows to find out what it is, specifically, that’s wrong with him — by taking a job at the company.
Gavankar plays Marisol Rajagopal, an icy confident and stunningly sexy professional termination associate at the Dunleavy Agency who doesn’t believe people need love to be happy and in fact thinks that they might be better off without it.
Payton will play Doubting Thomas, a former college All-American wide receiver who, after suffering a severe injury, becomes a professional relationship termination associate for the Dunleavy Agency.
