Ten-year Saturday Night Live veteran Chris Kattan has landed his first post-SNL gig as a regular: ABC's new comedy The Middle.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kattan guest-starred in the pilot and will play Bob, a good friend of fellow car salesman Frankie Heck (Patricia Heaton).

The WBTV-produced Middle is a single-camera comedy about a middle-class Midwestern family seen through the eyes of the mother (Heaton). It is slated to premiere Sept. 30, airing in the 8:30 p.m. Wednesday slot.
