Kyle Howard, Kat Foster to Star in TBS' 'Your Family or Mine' (Exclusive)
TBS has cast the leads for its adaptation of Israeli comedy Your Family or Mine.
My Boys alum Kyle Howard will return to the network and topline its comedy pilot opposite 'Til Death's Kat Foster, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Danny Comden and Andrew Lees have also boarded the pilot in recurring roles.
Family, written by Ground Floor co-creator and Friends alum Greg Malins, centers on young married couple Oliver (Howard) and Kelli (Foster), who are living proof of the adage, "When you marry someone, you don't just marry them, you marry their whole family." The series will alternate episodes, focusing on Oliver and Kelli's respective families.
Howard's Oliver is a happily married father of two described as geeky attractive who is prone to panic and is a gadget freak. Foster's Kelli is cute with a quick wit.
Comden (I'm With Her) will recur as Jason, the middle son in the family who is a cardiologist and married to Claire, who stands uncomfortably but gracefully in his shadow. Lees (Rescue Special Ops) is Blake, the youngest of the three sons of Ricky and Louis. He's catnip to women but never flaunts it.
The casting brings Howard back to the TBS fold after he spent four seasons starring on the network's comedy series My Boys. His credits include Royal Pains and Love Bites. Howard is repped by UTA and Himber.
Foster, repped by Paradigm, Authentic and Schreck Rose, co-starred on The Goodwin Games as well as Royal Pains, Weeds and two episodes of TBS sibling network TNT's Franklin & Bash.
Comden is with WME and Sloane Offer; Lees is represented by Resolution, Untitled and Silver Lining.
Malins will pen the Sony Pictures Television script and exec produce alongside FanFare's Jamie Tarses. Gale Mancuso will direct the pilot.
