An ABC sitcom alum is returning to his roots. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) has been set to star in an untitled half-hour comedy pilot for ABC.
Reno Wilson, Jolie Jenkins and Constance Zimmer have also joined the cast of the pilot from writer Tad Quill. The comedy centers on two friends who enter new, very different stages of their lives. Dean (McCormack) is a surgeon with a newborn and Seth (Wilson) is a contractor whose kids have just left the nest. Jenkins will play Dean's wife while Zimmer will play Seth's wife.
McCormack recently starred in the TNT series Trust Me that debuted in January, although it was said the series was not expected to return.
