NEW YORK – Indian American actress Sarayu Rao Blue will be playing a lead role in NBC’s new comedy series “I Feel Bad,” written and produced by Aseem Batra along with Amy Poehler.
The series, which tells the story of a mixed-race family, is expected to air in September on Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. and the trailer was just released by the channel.
Blue will play the role of a wife, mother, daughter and a boss, who makes herself believe that she is ‘perfect.’
“Emet is the perfect mom, boss, wife, friend, and daughter. Okay, she’s not perfect. In fact, she’s just figuring it out like the rest of us. Sure, she feels bad when she has a sexy dream about someone other than her husband, or when she pretends not to know her kids when they misbehave in public, or when she uses her staff to help solve personal problems. But that’s okay, right? Nobody can have it all and do it perfectly,” NBC wrote on their website.
The series also stars Paul Adelstein in a lead role.
Blue has played the role of Angela on the Fox sitcom “Sons of Tucson,” as well as Dr. Sydney Napur on “Monday Mornings” on TNT.
