He’ll star opposite Rob Lowe in the new Fox comedy ‘The Grinder’ this fall.

Fred Savage has signed with WME, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. He was previously a longtime client at CAA.

The beloved Wonder Years alum is returning to series-regular status for the first time in nearly a decade with Fox’s new fall comedy The Grinder, where he’ll star as a small-town lawyer suddenly caught up in sibling rivalry when his TV-lawyer big brother (Rob Lowe) moves home.

Savage was only 13 when he received the first of two Emmy nominations for portraying adolescent Kevin Arnold in ABC’s The Wonder Years (he would also pick up a couple of Golden Globe nominations for the role). The Princess Bride actor would later transition from child star to TV director, earning four DGA Award nominations for work in series including Modern Family and Wizards of Waverly Place. He also has helmed episodes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Party Down, Happy Endings, The Goldbergs and 2 Broke Girls.

Savage continues to be represented by attorney Karl Austen at Jackoway Tyerman.
