A week ahead of its second season finale, NBC’s comedy Undateable will be airing a live, one-hour episode. Titled “A Live Show Walks Into a Bar,” the episode airs tonight, May 5, at 9pm ET/PT (the show will be performed twice, so both East and West Coast audiences will see a different live version, each beginning at 9pm).
Musician Ed Sheeran broke the news on Twitter today that he will guest-star on tonight’s live episode. Sheeran joins several other stars — a number of whom have worked with co-executive producer Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Cougar Town) on other shows — who have already been confirmed as guest stars, including Zach Braff, Donald Faison, Neil Flynn, Christa Miller, Kate Walsh, Minnie Driver, Victoria Justice, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Mike Catherwood and “others we can’t name,” an NBC release says.
The plot for tonight’s live episode of Undateable: When a music festival comes to Detroit, Danny (Chris D’Elia) and Justin (Brent Morin) both try to win over a beautiful backup singer (guest star Victoria Justice) they met in the bar. As Danny tries to give Justin the chance to get the girl, he can’t help but compete for her attention. Meanwhile, the gang does their best to keep Candace (Bridgit Mendler) from going back to her old boyfriend. Bianca Kajlich, Ron Funches, David Fynn and Rick Glassman also star in the regular cast.
To follow along with and talk about tonight’s episode on social media, the hashtag #UndateableLive will be used on Twitter.
The Undateable live episode airs May 5 at 9pm ET/PT on NBC.
