There’s a new comedy pilot in town and it has two huge stars, singer/actress Mandy Moore, and now Stockard Channing.
The untitled ABC comedy pilot has just announced Moore’s two parents– Channing as her mother, and Kurt Fuller as her father. This project looks into the problems that happen growing up in a family, and the new problems that arise when looking to build away from that family.
The comedy will be told from the perspective of the daughter Annie (Moore), and Ben. The two are a young newly wedded couple who get a new opportunity to run a fancy, hip, restaurant, which just so happens to be in Annie’s old hometown and close to her needy parents who will do anything to get under her skin (not purposefully, of course).
Stockard Channing plays Barbara, the overbearing, needy, mother, and Kurt Fuller is to play her good-natured husband who gives the pants to Barbara in the marriage.
The writing will be tackled by Bob Fisher and Stacy Taub, who will also produce with Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements and Shawn Levy.
In addition to Stockard Channing, Mandy Moore, and Kurt Fuller, Roswell actress Majandra Delfino joins along with actress Erinn Hayes.
What do you guys think? Will this pilot get picked up for the fall season? Who would you like to see in the role of the husband?
