NBC Comedy Pilot Casts Krysta Rodriguez
By Denise Petski

The Smash alumna is set to co-star in The Trail, NBC’s documentary-style comedy pilot about a high-profile murder trial in a small southern town, TVLine has learned.

Penned by Jeff Astrof (Angie Tribeca, Ground Floor) and Matt Miller (Forever), the potential series follows a young, big-city lawyer (Gotham‘s Nicholas D’Agosto) and his oddball defense team.

Rodriguez will play Summer, the free-spirited adopted daughter of beloved poetry professor Larry Henderson (How I Met Your Mother‘s John Lithgow), who is accused of murdering his wife. Steven Boyer (Broadway’s Hand to God), Sherri Shepherd (How I Met Your Mother) and Jayma Mays (Glee) round out the cast.
