Abby’s ” is set at an unlicensed bar in San Diego where the regulars enthusiastically enforce a unique set of rules that give them a sense of community and allow them to avoid the frustrating behavior found at other establishments.” Flynn will be playing a regular bar patron named Fred who is “grateful for a place to relax, unwind, and have a beer every night.” The pilot is currently set to star Parks and Recreation alum Natalie Morales as the titular character Abby and will be written by Josh Malmuth and directed by Pam Fryman.
