• Linda Cardellini (Dead to Me, Green Book) plays "Margo Starling" - A perfectly-coiffed status seeker with buried secrets to spare, Margo knows how to get what she wants - and what she wants is the in-demand Morgan house so she can flip it for profit with her lover, a high-end developer.

• Luke Wilson (Fingernails, Horizons, You Gotta Believe) plays "JD Campbell" -- A depressed, out-of-work soap opera star desperate to land his next job, JD is looking to downsize from his modern McMansion while still maintaining both his lavish lifestyle and his marriage to a demanding wife.

• Teyonah Parris (The Marvels, They Cloned Tyrone, Wandavision) plays "Carla" - A high-achieving and somewhat sardonic architect and expectant mother, Carla and new husband Dennis are on the hunt for the perfect home for their expanding family. She falls hard for the Morgan house but the impending financial stress reveals some cracks in her new marriage.

• Abbi Jacobson (A League of Their Own, Broad City) plays "Leslie Fisher" - Clever, curious and competitive to a fault, Leslie is thrilled to discover that the Los Feliz home she and her wife have admired from afar has finally come on the market.

• Poppy Liu (Hacks, Dead Ringers, Better Call Saul and The After Party) plays "Sarah" -- Soulful, grounded and uncompromisingly decent, Sarah often serves as a much-needed moral compass to wife Leslie (Abbi Jacobson) -- though she's not without some secrets of her own. She's intrigued when the Morgan house comes on the market but has some deep reservations.

• Previously announced cast includes Ray Romano and Lisa Kudrow.

• Logline: No Good Deed is a half hour, dark comedy that follows three very different families vying to buy the very same 1920s Spanish style villa that they think will solve all their problems. But as the sellers have already discovered, sometimes the home of your dreams can be a total nightmare.
