Jay Mohr, Jaime King join CBS pilot
Paula Marshall also on board for the untitled comedyJay Mohr, Paula Marshall and Jaime King have been tapped to star in CBS' untitled Ed Yeager comedy pilot. Also cast in the pilot are Ryan Malgarini and Laura Marano.
The multicamera project from ABC Studios centers on an easygoing, recently divorced dad (Mohr) who tries to navigate new waters with his ex-wife (Marshall), to whom he was married for 15 years, his kids (Malgarini, Marano) and his new girlfriend (King).
Mohr is a regular on CBS' drama "Ghost Whisperer," produced by ABC Studios and CBS Par. As part of his deal to star in the Yeager pilot, that project also will become a co-production with CBS Par.
For Mohr, the Yeager project is in first position. But if the pilot goes to series, there is potential for him also to appear on "Whisperer," which has been renewed for next season.
Mohr is repped by Paradigm, New Wave and attorneys Deborah Klein and Andy Galker.
Marshall recently recurred on "Nip/Tuck." King is set to reprise her role in the sequel to "Sin City."
