After our latest update brought additional casting news, we’re back to check out how production on star & EP is going. Melissa Rauch, Jean Larroquetteand writer/EP Dan Rubinthe rebirth of Reinhold Weegethe popular sitcom of night yard. For those new to our coverage, Rubin’s sequel series introduces viewers to optimistic and unapologetic judge Abby Stone (Rauch), daughter of the late Harry Stone (the late Harry Anderson). Abby follows in her father’s footsteps as she chairs the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court and tries to bring order to her team of eccentrics and cynics, including the former prosecutor night court Dan Fielding (Larroquette). Along with Rauch and Larroquette, the series also features Beaufort India, Kapil Talwalkar, Lacrettaand Dmitry Marinov. And it is with Lacretta that we take stock, with an additional bonus this time. With an image of the board play area, we get a better look at the in-game script and see that it’s episode 11o: “Two Peas on a Pod.” Could it be an episode where Abby and Dan team up on a podcast, or two of the other characters we haven’t been introduced to yet?
Now here’s a preview of Lacretta’s tweet offering a quick update on how filming was going:
De Beaufort is set for the role of Olivia, the superficial, tightly-wound Type-A Court Assistant District Attorney. Olivia sees Night Court as a stepping stone to bigger and better things. She’s above this place and all the people in it, but it’s a good way to get some courtroom experience under her belt. It’s all part of his plan to land a job at one of the big companies. Thirty years will be there before she realizes it and if she doesn’t have a resounding success by then…well, better not think about it. Donna “Gurgs” Gurganous of Lacretta is generous, intense and does not cross borders. Taking his job seriously, Gurgs gets angry easily and fiercely protects his colleagues in the Night Court. She lives with several large dogs in a small apartment in Bay Ridge. As court clerk, it’s Neil’s (Talwalkar) job to get things done – a job that’s become much more difficult since an idealistic new judge shows up. Nikolai de Marinov is the court’s maintenance man. An essential character in the building, Nikolai appears in the daily life of the crew. He’s a mystery to everyone around the courthouse (and he likes it that way).
