Laura Prepon hopes ‘Awkward Situations for Men’ makes the cut

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: We’re just 10 days away from ABC’s fall schedule announcement, and Laura Prepon has her fingers crossed that “Awkward Situations for Men,” the hybrid comedy pilot in which she plays spouse to British funny man Danny Wallace, makes the cut.

“I honestly wasn’t in the market for another half-hour series,” says the former “That ‘70s Show” cutie. After her long-run in that show, “I thought, ‘That was the best situation you could be in for half hour comedy, so okay, done with that.’” She went on to do the short-lived but admired hour drama, “October Road.” Then, “This script just came along and my manager said ‘You’ve got to read this.’ It’s totally different, a blend of everything people love, British subtle humor and off-the-wall humor. Our director did a lot of the ‘Seinfelds,’ and that’s also our vibe, playing off the awkward situations that happen to people.”
