"Beverly Hills S.U.V.", an upcoming pilot show from NBC, is now casting many starring and supporting roles for its premiere episode.

With Emmy-winning producer Larry Wilmore as executive producer, this new sitcom will be an ensemble comedy about the competitive salespeople who work at an upscale Beverly Hills car
dealership. The show will have a similar tone in many ways to the David Mamet film "Glengarry Glen Ross".

Wilmore has also produced the hit NBC show "Whoopi" and Fox Network's "The Bernie Mac Show", for which he won an Emmy in 2002 for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.

"Beverly Hills S.U.V." is being produced by Wilmore Films in association with NBC Television. The first episode will be directed by newcomer Jamie Burrows.

None of the cast members have been set yet.
