Showtime to Pilot ‘End of Steve’

Martha Plimpton, Kiele Sanchez, Eddie Shin, Nate Torrence and Dreama Walker have joined Matthew Perry on his dark comedy Showtime pilot The End of Steve.

The Sony TV project, penned and executive produced by Peter Tolan and Perry, stars Perry as Steve, an egomaniacal local talk show host who is on a reluctant path to redemption.

Plimpton will play he show’s producer. Sanchez will play his pretty co-host, by whom he is completely entranced.

Shin (That ’80s Show) will play Bob Hu, Steve’s boss. Torrence, who co-starred with Perry on NBC’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, will play Nathan, Steve’s assistant. Walker (Gossip Girl) will play the hot teen daughter of the manager of the apartment complex where Steve lives.

Tony-nomineted Plimpton next stars on stage opposite Stockard Channing in the revival of Pal Joey. She is repped by Innovative and manager Jill Littman.

Sanchez, who recurred on Samantha Who? and Lost, is repped by Gersh and Artistry. Shin is repped by APA and Meghan Schumacher Management. Torrence is repped by CAA and Messina Baker. Walker is repped by Gersh.
