The untitled single-camera comedy centers on a Tony-winning mother (Smash's Megan Hilty) and a risk-averse, cerebral father (Greg Grunberg) who are blessed with a son who is a natural-born competitive athlete, forcing the two outside their parental comfort zones and into the high-octane world of youth sports.

Rajskub will play Susie, the twin sister to Gary (Grunberg). The character is opportunistic and always starting a new business and asking her brother for support. She joins a cast that includes Marissa Jaret Winokur, Efren Ramirez and Tony Rock.

Miller (American Dad) will pen the script for 20th Century Fox and 3 Arts and exec produce alongside Tom Lassally and Jonathan Berry. Alex Hardcastle will direct the pilot.

For Rajskub, the role marks a return to comedy following gigs on Californication, 2 Broke Girls, Arrested Development and New Girl. She's repped by Innovative Artists and Levity Entertainment.
