LOS ANGELES, July 21 (UPI) -- Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, David Alan Basche, Kelly Stables and Kristen Johnston are to star in a new U.S. sitcom called "The Exes," TV Land said.

Production is to start this week on the show, which is to premiere Nov. 30, the cable network announced Thursday.

In the show, Johnston plays Holly, a divorce attorney, who introduces her newly-single client Stuart, played by Basche, to his new roommates -- ladies' man Phil, played by Faison, and homebody Haskell, played by Knight -- who share an apartment Holly owns.

"We are so excited to start production on this sitcom," Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land, said in a statement. "The comedic talent in this show is a stellar addition to our network as we encourage viewers to 'laugh more.'"

Keith Cox, executive vice president of development and original programming for TV Land, added: "We couldn't ask for anything better than having [producer] Mark Reisman on board, a great team of writers and an amazing and hilarious group of actors. We hit the jackpot."
