According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Ritter has been tapped to star in The Class, CBS' new comedy series from David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik.
The Class, from Warner Bros. TV, begins with a party thrown by 27-year-old Ethan (Ritter) for his girlfriend, whom he met in third grade. Ethan invites six other people who were in the class with them, all of whom have since lost touch with one another. The party then becomes the springboard for following how the lives of the reunited characters continue to intersect.
Meanwhile, on the heels of the ABC/Touchstone TV hot trio of Lost, Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy each winning a Golden Globe on Monday, the network has given the green light to another trio of Touchstone TV-produced hourlong hopefuls, the pilots Sixty Minute Man, Day Break and Brothers & Sisters.
Additionally, ABC has given the go-ahead to Our Thirties, a comedy pilot from writer/executive producer Dave Walpert and Touchstone TV.
