SITCOM 2020 PILOTS: JULIE BOWEN TO LEAD CBS' RAISED BY WOLVES, CHEYENNE JACKSON JOINS MAYIM BIALIK IN CALL ME KAT AT FOX, JOSH SEGARRA ENTERS NIGHT SCHOOL AT NBC

NEW SITCOM PILOTS 2020
 Julie Bowen Is Raised By Wolves

Continuing with the updates on new multi camera sitcom pilots that we started yesterday (Click for Part One here, Part Two here and Part Three here), we move today over to CBS who have just cast Modern Family's Julie Bowen as the lead in their RAISED BY WOLVES multi camera sitcom. Coming from Will & Grace creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan it will follow Frankie Wolfe (Bowen), a very successful and fiercely independent crisis manager whose world is turned upside down when she decides to let someone into her life for the first time — an 11-year-old girl who she adopts and raises with the occasional help of her fragile, nervous wreck of a sister. Bowen’s Frankie is a totally put-together powerhouse whose aggressive, blunt-talking style belies the damage incurred by literally being raised by Wolfes (Barbara and Arnie).

NBC has meanwhile hired Josh Segarra as charming salesman Teddy Walker in their new multicam NIGHT SCHOOL from Marlon creators, which revolves around a unique mix of adults at a night school GED prep class who unexpectedly bond over their shared experience and find themselves helping one another both inside and outside of the classroom. Together with Shanola Hampton, Segarra will lead the cast that also includes alongside Ian Gomez, Collette Wolfe, James Earl and Joe Massingill!
Cheyenne Jackson Cast As Lead In Call Me Kat Sitcom At Fox

Fox, on the other hand, has cast a handsome hunk of their own: Cheyenne Jackson has joined Mayim Bialik in CALL ME KAT multi camera sitcom which is actually an American version of Miranda comedy which was very popular in United Kingdom and in which Tom Ellis played the male lead. It revolves around Kat (Bialik), a 39-year-old woman who struggles every day against society and her mother Sheila (Swoosie Kurtz) to prove that you cannot have everything you want — and still be happy. Which is why she spent the money her parents set aside for her wedding to open a Cat Café in Louisville, KY. Jackson will play her high school crush, Max, who recently returned from teaching English overseas and now works as a bartender across the street from the cat café. He’s getting over a long-term relationship with an ex that Kat imagines to be the most beautiful woman in the world — but Max values personality and humour over physical attractiveness.

  1. The mustache on Josh Segarra has moved him about two spots in the sexy department!! The premise sounds similar to Night School with Kevin Hart. Which, by the way, was sadly disappointing because Kevin's movies are usually good for a few genuine laughs.

    1. He is one of those flawless hunks that look even steamier with beard and moustaches. The sitcom is directly based on the film as its small screen adaptation.

  2. "Call Me Kat" sounds promising. I like the two leads.

    1. Hope it will be better than Miranda in UK, their actress was as funny as Olivia Coleman, meaning NOT AT ALL.

  3. Julie Bowen is my least favorite actress on Modern Family, but I'd be interested to see her lead her own sitcom.

    Mayim Bialik tends to bore me, so I'll probably not even check out her new one.

    1. I've never understood Modern Family so I haven't watched it myself and I agree on Mayim.
