On of those projects that's moving into production is a comedy pilot titled Browsersa musical comedy set in NYC that follows four young people as they begin their first jobs at a news website.

The cast for the pilot has been shored-up, with Marque Richardson (photo above), Dustin Ingram, Constance Wu, and Bridgette Davidovici playing the 4 young people, and veteran actress Bebe Neuwirth as their boss.

Primarily a TV actor, one of Richardson's early television highlights was a guest appearance on The Bernie Mac Show. He has appeared in series including: ER, 7th Heaven, Lincoln HeightsRules of Engagement, a recurring role on The Starter Wife, as well as on True Blood.
