Comedy was written by Josh Schwartz, Matt Miller

Eugene Levy has been tapped for a co-starring role in "Hitched," Josh Schwartz's multicamera comedy pilot for CBS.

"Hitched," which Schwartz co-wrote with Matt Miller, revolves around a twentysomething newlywed couple who, surrounded by family and friends, are still learning about each other.

Levy will play the groom's dad, a tracksuit-wearing four-times-divorced lothario.

Warner Bros. TV is producing "Hitched," which would mark Levy's first regular TV gig since Fox's 2002 comedy "Greg the Bunny."

The "SCTV" alum, best known for his roles in the "American Pie" movie franchise and in the Christopher Guest films, was recently seen in "Taking Woodstock."

He is repped by ICM and Anonymous.
