Brian Austin Green, long known for his role in the iconic hit Beverly Hills, 90210, and Harold Perrineau, of Lost and Oz fame, will lead the cast for TBS's pilot of The Wedding Band. The project comes to TBS from FremantleMedia, executive produced by Tollin Productions (Smallville, Arli$$). Josh Lobis (South Park) and Darin Moiselle (South Park) wrote the pilot and serve as co-executive producers. Bryan Gordon (Curb Your Enthusiasm) is set to direct and co-executive-produce the pilot.
The Wedding Band is an hour-long, scripted comedy that follows a group of guys who try to escape the stress and craziness of their lives by performing in a wedding band. Anchored by lifelong best friends - one a perennial bachelor and the other a married father of two - the band will stop at nothing to make every wedding, birthday or bar mitzvah a concert to remember. In addition to Green and Perrineau, the pilot stars Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles) and Derek Miller (Secret Girlfriend).
Perrineau, who scored big in such series as Oz, Lost and I'll Fly Away, turned in a memorable, scene-stealing performance as Mercutio in Baz Luhrmann's William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Perrineau also co-starred in the second and third films in The Matrix trilogy. Most recently, Perrineau co-starred in the offbeat crime drama The Unusuals.
Cambor co-starred in the comedy Notes from the Underbelly before being cast in the series NCIS: Los Angeles. Derek Miller is an accomplished improv comedy actor whose credits include the series Secret Girlfriend and a recurring role on Scrubs.
